Wanuskewin Celebrates 20 Years of Interpreting First Nations Culture

Wanuskewin Heritage Centre2012 marks a major milestone in Wanuskewin Heritage Park’s history, their 20th anniversary! To celebrate, Wanuskewin will be holding a two-day Pow Wow June 20-21, 2012. Pow Wows are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate, socialize, dance and sing. This Pow Wow however, will be especially significant.

The 20th Anniversary Pow Wow is a chance for those who have travelled great distances to join with others in celebration of Wanuskewin and to also celebrate National Aboriginal Day on June 21. National Aboriginal Day is a day where all Canadians recognize the significant contributions that First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples have made to our great country. It is a time for all to come together to learn from one another.

Wanuskewin Heritage CentreIt has been several years since the last Pow Wow was held at Wanuskewin Heritage Park and the energy and anticipation from the public is palpable! All people from all Nations are invited to join in this celebration of culture and heritage. It is open to the public and there is no admission to the park during these two days.
