International Peace Pow-Wow 2014 Set For This Weekend In Lethbridge

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The 15th annual International Peace Pow-Wow is coming to the Enmax Centre this weekend.

 

It'll feature aboriginal music, dance and other visual arts, with participants and spectators coming from all over North America. Blackfoot Canadian Cultural Society Executive Director Mary Ann Crow Healy noted that in past years people have come from as far as New York and California.

 

Crow Healy also went over a few of the highlights you can expect to see, "Specials include honour dances, so we have Miss Blackfoot Canada having a special and Miss Junior Blackfoot Canada, those specials are ladies jingle and teen traditional dances, and the head dancers are putting up specials as well, the chicken dance and ladies traditional." She added that there will also be an honour dance for Regional Police Chief Tom McKenzie Saturday evening.

 

As for how the event has changed over time, one thing stood out for Crow Healy, "I have to say it's the tiny tots, the numbers of dancers have been increasing over the years. Last year we had 64 tiny tots dancing, so a lot of parents are getting their children into dance."

 

Tickets are available at the Enmax Centre and online at www.enmaxcentre.ca. They cost $15 for anyone over 13, $5 for kids 7 to 12, with children six and under getting in free.
