FREDERICTON (GNB) – Nine First Nation communities in New Brunswick will celebrate their culture and heritage with annual powwows in the coming months.

“Powwows are a cultural celebration where people of all ages gather to sing, dance, and conduct spiritual ceremonies in honour of the First Nations heritage,” said Service New Brunswick Minister Ed Doherty, who is also minister responsible for Aboriginal Affairs. “It is an opportunity to renew old friendships, make new ones and gather together to reflect on New Brunswick’s aboriginal heritage. We are fortunate to have First Nation communities share their traditions with us by hosting powwows throughout the summer months, and I encourage all New Brunswickers to come join in the celebrations.”

A complete schedule of powwows being held in the province is available online.

Powwows are open to the public and carry on the tradition of embracing family, friends, and guests each year. They feature an array artwork, crafts, traditional clothing, food, vendors and concessions.
