On August 21 and 22, 2021, Garden River First Nation will host a Pow Wow in Honour of The Children of Residential School. Their hearts are with our brothers and sisters across Canada, especially the families of those children and their relatives across the lands. This discovery is a painful reminder of the ongoing trauma of residential schools and the impacts of colonialism on our people.
A Pow Wow is a cultural gathering and celebration open to everyone. At the Pow Wow, visitors will experience the diverse culture through drumming, singing, dancing, arts and crafts, demonstrations and some of the best tasting food!
Highlights include various special honour songs, grand entry, showcase of home-made artwork, award winning Indigenous music, special exhibition dances, cultural displays, and an exhibit in honour of the Children of Residential School.
