Saugeen First Nation celebrates the 49th annual Pow Wow

They flitted, they flew … like colourful butterflies and birds, the dancers at the 49th Saugeen First Nation Pow Wow had spectators enthralled with their intricate movements.

The Pow Wow, held on August 10th and 11th, featured singers, drummers and competitive dancers from across Ontario and as far away as Oklahoma in the United States.

Miss kettle & Stony Point Jr. Miss, JayLynn Wolfe was resplendent in turquoise.

Hundreds of visitors took in the annual event under perfect weather conditions at the Saugeen First Nation James Mason Recreation Centre.

 

 

Saugeen’s Chief, Lester Anoquot, led the Grand Entry parade on Saturday, August 10th, for the opening, carrying the official Eagle staff, followed by many flag bearers.

The regalia of the dancers was nothing short of spectacular with intricate bead work, eagle feathers and multi-coloured tassels.
