National Indigenous Peoples Day - Kelowna

Postby normaM » Jun 21st, 2019, 5:11 pm

I will be the reporter :) Nation wide, a city street blocked off. Lots of people, not many non Indigenous it seemed.
Stage, performers, fair number of vendors ( and there were some beautiful moccasins. Bead worked Jewellery, t shirts. Everyone was super friendly and happy everyone I spoke with was from Northern AB ( Cree)
Would have been nice to see it promoted more and more people out as it was a nice day.
Fair number of Police and lots of Security people. No food booths ( at least when I was there) I had hoped for Bannock
Nice time :)

Wife and I went down again this year. Love the kid jingle dancers but there were only 2 male dancers outfitted in their best. Would have liked to see more dancers. Spokane Washington has a great pow wow as well as Omak. The Spokane one gives us honkey white dudes dance lessons then a contest. What hoot that was. Wife could not believe her old fat redneck husband was up shakin it .!!!! ( I did not win the dance off )
