Ak­we­sasne In­ter­na­tional Pow- Wow

Seaway News - - RESTAURANTS/ ENTERTAINMENT -

The Ak­we­sasne In­ter­na­tional Pow­Wow will be held on Sept. 12 and 13 at the A'nowara'ko: wa Arena on Corn­wall Is­land, On­tario.

On the shores by the beau­ti­ful St. Lawrence River, vis­i­tors can en­joy a two day event with good mu­sic, good food and good com­pany. The Ak­we­sasne Pow-Wow brings to­gether the best Na­tive ar­ti­sans, drum­mers and dancers from this re­gion.

The pow-wow al­lows Ak­we­sasne to join with other First Na­tions from across Canada and the United States to share in this great gath­er­ing, it also al­lows vis­i­tors from many na­tions to par­tic­i­pate in this ex­cit­ing cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence.

En­joy and take part in the “ fastest dance on two feet” with our Iro­quois Smoke Dancers. This dance got its name back when the peo­ple would dance around the fire pit caus­ing air to cir­cu­late, and thus help­ing the fire em­bers ig­nite.

It is hoped that this time spent to­gether will bring us to a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of one an­other and foster a strong bond of peace and friend­ship with our neigh­bours of all cul­tures.

The gates open to the pub­lic at 10 a. m. on Satur­day and Sun­day and the fes­tiv­i­ties start with a spec­tac­u­lar grand en­try at noon with all the beau­ti­fully dressed dancers.
