Saugeen First Nations Pow Wow 2009

First Nations


 Like exotic birds, they twirled in brilliant colours 

Despite cloud and a slight drizzle, the annual Saugeen First Nation Pow Wow went ahead as planned.

There was a large turnout with participants coming from throughout Ontario and the United States to take part in the traditional celebrations and dancing competitions. Visitors enjoyed food of every description and the many vendors on the Pow Wow grounds also proved to be popular.

Day two carries on tomorrow with a parade at 1:00 p.m. at the James Mason Centre at the Saugeen First Nation on Hwy. 21 adjacent to Southampton, Ontario
