Nipissing University and Canadore College
The eighth annual Welcome Powwow at Nipissing University and Canadore College will be held on Friday.
Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
The one-day powwow is an opportunity to celebrate and share Aboriginal Culture, while honouring the diversity of all Nations represented at Canadore College and Nipissing University. There are more than 500 First Nation, Inuit and Métis students enrolled in courses at the two institutions. Many travel long distances to attend school in North Bay, from as far west as Alberta to James Bay and Northern Québec.
The powwow provides a social background for students, faculty, leadership and the North Bay community to come together in celebration of higher learning in post-secondary education. Traditional drummers, singers and dancers in regalia, including students and faculty, will be participating.
Date: Friday, September 13, 2013
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: Education Centre Campus Pond, 100 College Drive, North Bay, Ont.
The powwow is hosted by Nipissing University’s Office of Aboriginal Initiatives and Canadore College’s First People’s Centre.
