The First Peoples’ House invites you to share in the celebrations for our 14th Annual Pow Wow!
Friday, September 18th, 2015
11:00am to 4:00pm
Join us under the big tent to catch the Grand Entry at 11:00am on McGill’s Lower Field.
It will be a full day of traditional dancing and drumming. This is an excellent opportunity to browse artisan vendors, learn about student groups, and connect with Indigenous organizations.
The Pow Wow is free and open to the public!
