37th ANNUAL SPRING CELEBRATION POW-WOW

April 11 & 12, 2015  REGINA, SK

 

Everyone Welcome!

Brandt Centre  Evraz Place

1700 Elphinstone Street, Regina SK

The Pow-wow is a celebration of spring and a sharing of First Nations culture that adds to the diversity and cultural mosaic of Saskatchewan.  It is one of the longest running celebrations in the province and has grown to be one of the largest as well.  Last year we had 600 registered dancers including over 100 tiny tots.  Approximately 7,000 visitors came to the Pow-wow over the course of the weekend.  The event is alcohol free and is targeted at families and spectators (Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal) visitors of all ages.

 

This come-and-go event has exciting and colourful performances that run continuously throughout the afternoon and evening, beginning with our Grand Entry at 12:00 noon on Saturday and Sunday and closing with a “retiring of the flags” ceremony at about midnight each night. The Pow-wow is also a ceremony that we have made available to the community.  Each year we receive many calls from families and friends requesting time for specials to remember loved ones, initiate new dancers, recognize the leaders and to honour our elders and veterans.  On behalf of our faculty, staff, students and the Pow-wow Committee we hope to see you there!
