Stories from the road: Six Nations

Hi everyone, this is Gillian from the AAE team. This weekend Sabrina and I attended the Six Nations ‘Champion of Champions’ pow wow on the Grand River. This pow wow was absolutely huge! We talked to so many people, saw familiar faces, and met many new friends as well.

Stories from the road: Whitefish Lake

This weekend Melanie and I visited the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek pow wow on Whitefish Lake. It was easily one of the most beautiful pow wow grounds we have seen this summer; the grounds were right next to the beautiful lake, and the road to the grounds was long and winding.

Stories from the road: Scugog

Sabrina Here!

This past weekend Melanie and I attended the Port Perry Scugog Pow Wow.  We started off with an early Saturday morning as we made the drive down to Port Perry and set up before Grand Entry. It was a beautiful day and the pow wow was very organized, we even had our own special spot with a number.

Stories from the road: Seneca Nation

Greetings from the pow wow trail, this is Gillian. This weekend Alyssa and I packed up to attend the Marvin “Joe” Curry Veteran’s Seneca Nation pow wow in Salamanca, New York.

The drive down was quite confusing, we got lost once on the way there and once on the way back! The drive was very scenic nonetheless.

Stories from the road: Kahnawake

Hi everyone, its Gill here from the AAE summer outreach team!

Stories from the road: Kettle & Stoney Point

Alyssa again!

This weekend Sabrina and I travelled to Kettle and Stoney Point to attend their pow wow. The weekend got off to a hot and stuffy start with a couple extra hours of traffic added on to our drive on Friday. I think everyone was trying to get to their weekend destinations to enjoy the excellent weather conditions, just like us. We would have much rather already been at the pow wow at that point, but we got there eventually.  Here's all our gear, packed in the back seat.

Stories from the road: Munsee-Delaware

Hey!

It’s Melanie G. from the AAE powwow trail. This weekend the trail landed Gillian and I in Munsee-Deleware Nation just outside of London, ON. We had a wonderful time making new friends and seeing others.  The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and we had all kinds of people drop by our booth!
