Please join us for Urban Shaman’s second year hosting a pop-up, out-door, non-competitive, family-friendly pow-wow located in the heart of Winnipeg. The body of Indigenous regalia and dance encompasses a rich tradition of kinship and spirituality. Bring the family down to our mini, one day, non-competitive, urban pow-wow trail presented by Urban Shaman Gallery in partnership with the Wall-to-Wall Festival and Sākihiwē Festival.
CALL TO DANCERS WHO JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!
Dancers we want you to come out and show your stuff!!! A performance of 45 minutes (thus the pop up aspect of the event) of non-competitive dance, we hope the pow wow community understands this is a kind of Friendship Dance event and to bring the spirit of unity and fun to the gathering. All welcome!
