Miskanawah Friendship Round Dance
On Saturday, January 18th, the public is invited to join hands to celebrate friendship, family, diversity, and inclusivity at the 14th Annual Miskanawah Friendship Round Dance at the Genesis Centre at 5:00 pm.
Steeped in tradition, the Round Dance is a healing ceremony that honours the memories of loved ones through singing and dancing, followed by a cultural feast. This event brings thousands of people from all background together to celebrate First nations culture, and will feature original works of art, jewelry, and textiles by local Indigenous artists. Donations will be accepted at the door. Proceeds from this event will go towards supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families throughout Calgary.
Miskanawah (mis-con-a-wa), Cree for “many little roads and paths” is a non-profit organization that supports Calgarians in the areas of positive parenting, child development, youth engagement, and leadership. We work from a solution-focused and strength-based perspective towards healing, strength, and reconiciliation.
