Delta Park Pow Wow!

Pow Wow is a great chance to experience both indigenous culture and spirituality, and I look forward to talking with our kids and youth about how indigenous spiritual practice includes dance, drumming, regalia and storytelling...with sacred rules handed down through the generations.

All ages are welcome. Pow wow is free. Remember not to take any photos unless you ask the person's permission first.
