MISKANAWAH’S ANNUAL ROUND DANCE TRADITION
For the past 16 years, Miskanawah has hosted an annual Round Dance and it has since become the largest Round Dance in Southern Alberta! A Round Dance is an Indigenous social gathering that extends a welcoming invitation to everyone in a celebration of friendship, diversity, and inclusivity. Traditionally held during the colder months, this event encourages both our Indigenous and non-Indigenous relatives within Treaty 7 territory and beyond to learn, connect, and engage with Elders, traditional Knowledge Keepers, and community members in an evening of singing, drumming, and dancing.
Emcee: Hal Eagletail, Tsuu T’ina & Daniel "Moss" Wildman
Stickman: Lyle Tootoosis, Poundmaker, Sask. & Albert Goulet, Calgary, AB
Singing & Drumming: TBA
Special Pre-recorded Guest: War Paint Lead Singer, Kaya Littleturtle, North Carolina, USA
