First Nations University of Canada
37th ANNUAL SPRING CELEBRATION POW-WOW
April 11 & 12, 2015 REGINA, SK
Brandt Centre Evraz Place
1700 Elphinstone Street, Regina SK
Our University pow-wow is a ceremony and an opportunity to share our First Nations culture with the rest of the world. It is also a celebration of spring to recognize this joyous time of year. We are thankful for having seen another winter pass and look forward to the rebirth of our Mother Earth.
The First Nations University Pow-wow is one of the longest running celebrations in Saskatchewan and has grown to be one of the largest as well. Our students began this celebration more than 35 years ago and they still play a significant leadership role in hosting the event.
Everyone is welcome. The event is alcohol free and is targeted at families and spectators (Indigenous and Non-Indigenous) 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. This year we have a number of specials including tiny-tot initiations, adult dance competitions and hand-drum contests.
On behalf of our faculty, staff, students and the Pow-wow Committee we hope to see you there!
- Richard Missens, Pow-wow Committee Chair
