Pow-wow to honour graduates

Advertisement

The fifth annual “Spirit of the Peace Pow-Wow” will take place at the District Ice Centre in Taylor June 18-20.

This year’s theme is “Nurturing the Spirit of our Youth”, says Susan Auger, media liaison for the pow-wow, which will include a new ceremony to honour its 2010 high school graduates.

Auger says the pow-wow was originally started in 2006 by the Aboriginal Education Centre in Fort St. John for a local dance group because many of the children are in foster care and are disconnected from their culture. So, the idea was to initiate them into the pow-wow tradition. This year, a group from Dawson Creek will be initiated into the circle.

The 2010 event will begin with the ceremonial grand entry (one on Friday, two on Saturday, and one on Sunday) and since Sunday will be Father’s Day, there will be a round dance in celebration.

Other attractions will include arts and craft booths, various vendors, and a raffle for a 50’’ LCD flatscreen TV.
