The event will include opportunities for the community to learn about the importance of celebrating culture and honouring future leaders says a college news release.
"It is unusual for a college to be able to say that they are hosting their 29th annual pow-wow," said Mary Wabano, director of Canadore's First Peoples' Centre. "Canadore College has played an integral role in Indigenous education, academically and culturally, for decades. We are so proud of that, and we invite people to join us at this gathering, which is truly community-driven, no matter what your heritage is."
The cultural gathering will include drumming, dancing, Indigenous arts and crafts, and a traditional feast.
Delegates include: Chris Pheasant, emcee; host drum, the Ottawa River Singers; co-host drum, High Ridge Singers; Meegwyn Alisappi, head female; Eric Assinewai, head male; Roger Assinewai, arena director; and Elder Peter Beaucage.
Everyone is welcome to attend this one-day event.
