TRU hosts Tiny Tots Powwow this weekend

The 2013 Honouring Our Tiny Tots Cultural Celebration and Powwow will take place at Thompson Rivers University on Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2.

The annual celebration grew from a student-led social-work class project three years ago on decolonization.

It brought together non-aboriginal students with no experience in hosting an aboriginal event, who then created the powwow.

About 300 participants are expected to take place, representing several aboriginal groups from across the province.

Celebrations occur at 7 p.m. each day, as well as at 1 p.m. on Saturday in the campus gym.

This year’s host drum is Kwatna Mountain, master of ceremonies is Richard Jackson and area director is Jim Edgar.
