Pow Wow Information
At Smith Falls District Collegiate Institute, the students of the Indigenous Studies Program and local Indigenous youth will host the 3rd Annual Pow Wow ceremony in the Town of Smiths Falls in 2019. The purpose of the Pow Wow is to bring people together, to connect the school with the community and to share, teach and celebrate Indigenous culture and traditions. The Pow Wow has welcomed the Akwesasne Mohawks as well as the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation, from which over 100 members attended. The Pow Wow connects the school and local community – Indigenous and non-Indigenous – in a celebration of learning, teaching and reconciliation. It demonstrates how experiential learning fosters a deeper connection for students as they learn about other cultures, with 3,000 people attending the 2018 Pow Wow.
