Every summer, there are colourful, amazing festivals that take place at First Nations all around the province. Dancers and drummer practice all through the winter season, and family members help to make the dancer’s regalia by hand. I have posted more information other years, so search “pow wow” to find out a little more. You are welcome to come and watch, for free, provided that you are drug and alcohol-free, and you behave in a manner that’s respectful. Here are some of the pow wows that will be closest to Edmonton this summer.
