ATTENDING THE POW WOW

Here's a couple helpful tips to make you feel comfortable if it's your first time attending a pow wow:

  • The First Nations University of Canada Spring Pow Wow Celebration is one of the largest pow wows in Western Canada with close to 10,000 who attend.
  • The pow wow is open to any and everyone. We love when non-indigenous people join us.
  • A pow wow is simply a celebration - it's not a ceremony so you can be at ease.
  • Wear whatever you'd like - there is no dress code for attendees.
  • There is a dancing, singing, and drumming competition with amazing prizes for those competing.
  • There is a tradeshow on with some incredible products some bring some shopping money.
