Thank you

The Powwow Committee would like to thank everyone who came out to the 2018 Annual Graduation Powwow yesterday. It was a great success. The committee would like to especially thank the Elders, veterans, dancers, drummers and community members for celebrating and honouring the secondary school and U of S graduates of 2018. This powwow would not have been possible without the support of our presenting sponsor Affinity Credit Union, the powwow’s head staff, and the 200 plus volunteers who worked the powwow. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you again at next year’s powwow.
