  • A family friendly festival with more than 500 First Nations artists, performers and educators from across the Americas. They come to demonstrate the finest in Native American song, dance, drumming, food, art and crafts. The mission of the event is to educate the general public about Native American traditions and cultures, and to help brake stereotypes about Native American culture and its people today. One of the highlights of the celebration are the Native American dancers who showcase their different styles such as; Men's Fancy War: With a circle of eagle feathers on their backs, they spin furiously; Woman's Fancy Shawl: With shawls draped across their shoulders, they appear to float; Men's Northern Traditional: The dancers tell stories of past hunts and battles; Women's Jingle Dress: They make the sound of a gentle rain falling to the earth; Hoop Dance where a dancer creates different animal shapes with small hoops.
