Pow Wow Committee Specials & Glow in the Dark Pow Wow ft Dj Shub

Indigenous Day Celebration

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Cap off the evening of National Indigenous Peoples’ Day as our competition pow wow kicks off with a bang!

Starting at 6:00 PM, get ready for the committee specials featuring our host drum for 2024 – Northern Cree!  Northern Cree Singers are one of the most respected and popular pow wow drum groups in North America.  In 2023, they were a finalist in the SSIMA Music Awards with one of their members Joel Wood winning the title for Pow Wow album of the year.  They have been nominated for six Grammy awards and two Juno awards. Northern Cree will be live all weekend starting with the NIPD celebrations in the Pow Wow grounds.

Then, at 9:00 PM, join DJ Shub and Theland Kicknosoway in the Pow Wow circle for a one of a kind dance experience with a glow in the dark pow wow.  Glow in the dark hoop and fancy dancers will invite the audience to join the dance circle as the sun sets to finish with a fun glow in the dark pow wow on the longest day of the year.

DJ Shub is a Mohawk DJ and music producer from the Six Nations of the Grand River.  He was one of the founding members of A Tribe Called Red and has had incredible success as a solo artist including a Juno award and the 2022 SSIMA award for Live Music Performance of the Year – which means you won’t want to miss this live show.
