|Moose Jaw Pow Wow|
|Written by Jackie Straub|
The beautiful weather Moose Jaw received Saturday arrived with perfect timing for outdoor celebration and revelry.
The Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association (WACA) hosted a powwow in Moose Jaw on Gutheridge Field next to the Empire Community School on Saturday.
WACA held the event for Aboriginal History Month, and to coincide with honouring the youth at Empire Community School.
"I dance in the flags and dance some rounds... I'm usually one of the last ones to dance, its exciting to dance for the people and have them cheer." Hawk Obey, a fancy feather double bustle dancer told the Times-Herald.
the Prairie South School Division started a powwow group, where students have been learning the traditions of making their own clothing and learning to dance.
Alwyn Foureyes, another dancer explained, "its not a competition powwow, but its going pretty good. Its the beginning of powwow season, so its a warmup for me; all summer I travel to do this."
