The 2019 Living Sky Casino Pow Wow took place recently. As the 7th edition of this cultural event, it’s indoor location serves to magnify its color and pageantry.

With more than 500 participants the sights and sounds can be overwhelming to people with a non-first nation’s heritage.  And so too can be the rich traditions and meaning of the Pow wow itself. When you look past the initial observations that overload your senses, you see a  heritage full of detail and meaning. More than just a competition, a Pow wow holds a deep spiritual meaning for the performers.

We encourage to take a few minutes and watch our short film as we take a closer look at some of the people we met during the making of this film.
