#CBUstaycation Challenge – Attend a Pow Wow in a First Nation Community

Did you know that pow wow’s are celebrations that showcase Indigenous culture? It’s a dynamic, and fun, way to learn more about the traditional dances and ways of the Mi’kmaw people in Nova Scotia, and beyond. Traditionally a community feast is involved and the rhythmic drumming is intended to unite the community in a respectful way. Often during a pow wow a fire is lit at the beginning and kept burning until the pow wow is complete. That can mean that firekeepers must tend to the fire all night long. That’s dedication!
