17th Annual Abegweit Pow-Wow took place from the Panmure Island Cultural Grounds in Panmure Island, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The Pow-Wow reunites Aboriginal peoples from across Canada. Jimmy Augustine from Elsipogtog, New Brunswick was the Master of Ceremonies for the great event.
A Pow-Wow is a rejoicing of life through a feast and dance to the "Heart Beat of Mother Earth" represented in the Sacred Drum. The drummers are the Stoney Bear Singers from Eskasoni, Nova Scotia. The Pow-Wow includes: traditional teachings, Aboriginal art, booths with great crafts, bingo, and tickets with a chance to win many monetary prizes.
The Pow-Wow ended on Sunday evening with the Mi'kmaq Feast that is open to the visiting public. Included on the menu was famous PEI lobster, mussels, salmon, strawberry cake dessert, tea, etc. The line ups were long but the wait was worth the very enjoyable meal, and fellowship with the Aboriginal people of Canada.
The Pow-Wow location in Panmure Island, PEI is great because the excellent sand beach is close by for enjoyable swimming and to cool off from the warm August weather in beautiful Prince Edward Island.
The Aboriginal people have a very rich culture and tradition; the Pow-Wow is a great expression of this culture and is a great way to educate the general public.
That's it for now...
