Annual Welcome Powwow at the Education Centre

The tenth annual Welcome Powwow at Nipissing University and Canadore College will be held on Friday, September 18, at 11 a.m. beside the Education Centre pond.

Everyone is welcome to attend the powwow, as it is an opportunity to celebrate and share Aboriginal culture while honouring the diversity of students at Nipissing and Canadore.

There are more than 650 First Nation, Inuit and Métis students enrolled in programs at Nipissing and Canadore. Many travel long distances to attend school in North Bay, from as far west as Alberta to James Bay and northern Québec.

The powwow is hosted by Nipissing University’s Office of Aboriginal Initiatives and Canadore College’s First Peoples’ Centre.  In the event of inclement weather the powwow will be in the Robert J. Surtees Student Athletic Centre.  

Please Note: pictures and filming are not permitted during the Grand Entry and Flag Song. 

Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
