Yesterday was National Indigenous Peoples Day, and I celebrated by going to the Turtle Island Festival at the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Centre in downtown Kelowna. I try to refrain from writing about what I do when I’m not out driving the backroads, but I’m making an exception in this case.
I do love a Powwow.
I love seeing arts and crafts on display, I love the regalia, the singing, the rhythm of the drums – but most of all, I love Powwow dancing. Here are a few images from this year’s celebration.
