The Grand River ‘Champion of Champions’ Powwow

The Grand River 'Champion of Champions' Powwow

This weekend I went to The Grand River ‘Champion of Champions’ Powwow at Chiefswood Park on the Six Nations Reservation. I grew up next to the reservation and attended a couple of Powwows as a child, but had not been to one in several years.

When I realized that I would not only be in the country, but at home in Southern Ontario for this years Powwow I knew that I would be going.

Rounding up my Norwegian house-guests, we hit the road to the Park and readied ourselves for a day of cultural entertainment, craft-shopping and food stalls.

Here are some of my favourite photos:

    STUNNING photos. Truly. I went to one here in Georgia when I was younger but the native population here isn’t nearly what it once was.

      Thanks! Ooh, I bet it was still a good powwow though. You’ll have to come to one up in Canada some time :]
