NACCA CEO Shannin Metatawabin will deliver the welcoming address with his message of hope and prosperity.
We’ll be joined by Elder Donna-Lise Lamothe telling us stories of resilience and overcoming hardship. We’ve done it before and we will continue to do it.
Brenda MacIntyre, Juno award-winning, Medicine Song Woman will sing to us of hope and moving forward with strength.
Laryn Oakes, a seasoned powwow dancer who hails from the Nekaneet First Nation in southern Saskatchewan, is of Plains Cree, Meskwaki, Navajo and Nakota ancestry. Like many people, she says the COVID-19 pandemic has caused her a lot of anxiety, but she said being able to dress in her regalia and dance has been therapeutic for her.
We’re celebrating who we are and our ability to grow through adversity. We will come out of this time stronger, more resilient, and with the knowledge that we are part of a community helping each other.
