Gelu’lg Maw-a-paw – A Celebration of Indigenous Art and Culture
New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) is committed to nurturing a culture of belonging, where everyone feels valued and has opportunities to add value. One of the ways we nurture that culture of belonging is through the development of authentic partnerships with Indigenous communities, enhancing student and staff learning of Indigenous knowledge, culture and history.
On October 25, NBCC will host our third Indigenous Gala, Gelu’lg Maw-a-Paw, a celebration of Indigenous culture in support of NBCC’s Indigenous Student Bursary program, at the Delta Fredericton. This year’s celebration will be feature We Are Wabanaki, is a performance group brought together by Natalie Sappier-Samaqani Cocahq, a noted Wolastoqiyik inter-disciplinary artist from Tobique First Nation. Storytellers, drummers and dancers will come together with visual and media artists to weave a rich tapestry of narrative about the Wabanaki peoples.
