Serpent River First Nation powwow well attended

The event was marked by Indigenous-made goods and dancing

The Serpent River First Nation powwow returned Saturday after being forced to take a hiatus for two years due to the pandemic.

The Grand Entry featured participants in colourful regalia, elders, veterans and dancers of every tradition.

Traditional regalia and prayer were also part of the Grand Entry.

Outside the sacred powwow circle, vendors were kept busy selling a wide range of Indigenous-made goods and food vendors were also kept busy serving the crowds attending.

Water stations were set up for people needing fluids and the sunny, hot weather.

The powwow was a free event held on Saturday and Sunday.
