Dancer with a scout at the Intertribal Powwow

Visiting scouts had the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities in conjunction with the First Nations Intertribal Powwow. The program booklet reads:

"A unique cultural experience awaits you at the First Nations' encampment on Cumberland Street (southern end of Boulevard Lake). Your one program period visit (morning or afternoon), or overnight stay at the site will  increase your understanding of First Nations' culture, heritage, language and traditional practices. Learn about ceremonies and meet traditional elders, craftspeople, artists, dancers and singers. Make yourself an authentic craft to share with your friends and family. If you feel up to the challenge, participate in the Inuit Games. They will test your physical strength and stamina!"
