Round Dance

"Individuals from all backgrounds come together in friendship to celebrate First Nations culture and to honour the traditions and memories of our ancestors."
Many participants at last year’s event formed new connections, while others rekindled friendships. Indigenous and non-Indigenous people alike participated, experienced, and connected with traditional Cree/Saulteaux cultures.
The success of the event was a result of collaboration and partnerships formed between Miskanawah staff, community members, businesses, organizations, local First Nations artists, volunteers, and our major sponsor, United Way. It’s thanks to everyone’s hard work and dedication that we are able to bring thousands of people from all communities and backgrounds together to celebrate friendships, family, diversity, inclusivity, and community.
