Na-Me-Res Annual Traditional Pow Wow
On Saturday June 18 2016 Na-Me-Res will be the proud host of Toronto’s Annual Traditional Pow Wow in recognition of National Aboriginal Day and the Summer Solstice, June 21st. Every year, thousands of people attend the celebration to enjoy traditional food and watch over 100 drummers and dancers perform. Come explore the information booths, meet First Nations crafters and vendors, and participate in activities and giveaways.

Admission to the Pow Wow is free, open to the general public, and a great event for families.

The day starts with a sunrise ceremony held at The Men’s Residence where an Elder presides over the welcoming of the day. The Pow Wow Grand Entry takes place at noon.

After the Grand Entry, the rest of the day is a wealth of traditional dancing and drumming, a shared feast, and the gathering of communities across Turtle Island.

Traditional food includes vegetarian and meat tacos, and corn soup with bannock. Non-traditional fare includes hamburgers and hot dogs.

Any donations on the day directly support Na-Me-Res programming.
