Six Nations of the Grand River Annual Champion of Champions Pow Wow

July 25th and 26th, 2015

Chiefswood Tent and Trailer Park: Six Nations of the Grand River, Brant County Road 54, Oshweken, ON

From the website, "a Aboriginal Multicultural event, annually the fourth weekend of July; so as to promote our rich arts heritage by showcasing our ‘pride’ in music, dance, arts and crafts.

Many Native Americans from the United States now participate as well. The forum for this expression in the arts has been coined a “Powwow” and is always presented with the utmost dignity. The event takes place in the open-air, during the afternoon and on into the evening under lights. It has been held at Chiefswood Tent & Trailer Park, on the grounds of the former Estate of the Mohawk Poetess E. Pauline Johnson, at the Six Nations of the Grand River Community."

The Pavilion will bring together Indigenous peoples from across the Americas to celebrate, share and learn through our exciting programming. From Main Stage musical performances to dance, theatre, and family programming on our Small Stage; from visual arts and traditional crafts workshops to artist talks, film screenings, a curated exhibition, there will be much to see and much to do! At the very heart of the Aboriginal Pavilion is the Cultural Village which will consist of six traditional houses. Each one representative of a specific Indigenous community or a collective of individuals from an Indigenous group or region. The traditional houses are a visual and symbolic representation of Indigenous peoples coming together for the purpose of providing a rich experience that's culturally appropriate, educational, and enriching. Energetic athletes will animate our Sports Zone, and talented artisans and chefs will offer up handcrafted works and culinary treats for visitors in our Artisan and Food Marketplace. A cultural feast awaits you!"
