A special powwow is returning for the first time in two years. The Kainai Powwow and Celebration is coming to the Blood Tribe starting tonight with traditional Indigenous games and sports. Travis Plaited Hair, with the powwow committee, says he’s excited to welcome back everyone to Red Crow Park in Standoff, Alberta and you can expect lots of activities.
“Kainai is kicking off this evening, Friday at 7pm with our grand entry. Along with our tour rodeo, Indian relay racing. We also have a golf tournament, a ball tournament, and of course the powwow itself sort of being the main attraction. We’re anticipating a good crowd this weekend.”
The powwow runs all weekend with a 3pm feast on Sunday to end the festivities.
