The First Nations University of Canada Spring Celebration Powwow Committee welcomes everyone to the longest-running indoor powwow in Treaty 4 Territory. The doors will open at 9:00 am for this 2-day April 22 & 23 event held at the Brandt Centre, REAL District, in Regina, SK. The first grand entry on Saturday, April 22nd, at noon, will kick off the Spring Celebration Powwow presented by K+S Potash Canada. Over the weekend, two grand entries will be each day at 12:00 pm and 7:00, with dancing and singing contest finals.
Scheduled throughout the weekend are 32 dance category competitions and several family and committee dance specials. We welcome all singers & drum groups from across Canada and the United States to compete in the Singing Competition sponsored by SaskPower. An annual highlight during the powwow is the Miss FNUniv Princess Pageant, now the Miss FNUniv Ambassador Contest. The reigning Miss FNUniv Princess, Alexis Isnana, will transfer her crown during the Miss FNUniv Ambassador Pageant on Saturday, April 22nd, during supper break.
If you want to purchase authentic Indigenous arts, crafts, and clothing from Indigenous artisans and businesses, you must browse the Tradeshow Market to see if anything catches your eye. An extension to the tradeshow market, visit the food vendors and enjoy some bannock or a smoothie! The entire market will be an experience, and at the same time, you’ll support Indigenous artisans and businesses.
