For years, the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association hosted the City’s annual Powwow.
This year, WACA has decided to partner with many sponsors so they can host the first-ever two-day Powwow and gathering at Kiwanis River Park in Moose Jaw, in support of Truth and Reconciliation Day.
“It’s the first time we’ve done a two-day Powwow here in Moose Jaw. We’ve always done one day, up until now, so we’re excited to add to it and have two days of lots of activities,” says Chair of the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association, Lori Deets.
“Every child matters, and it means a lot to me as the mother of an indigenous child,” added Deets. “I just think we need a lot more love and acceptance of others, and that’s what this is about; Everybody remembering and honouring the truth of our history, but also looking forward together in celebration.”
The grounds will be open from 11 am Friday to 5 pm Saturday, with overnight camping on site.
The Powwow will kick off at 1 pm on both days, and all are welcome to attend.
There will also be plenty of family-friendly activities, music, concessions, and more.
