Dryden High School will be hosting their 22nd annual mini Pow Wow and Metis Celebration on Friday.

Kieran McMonagle, First Nation, Metis, and Inuit Graduation coach for the Keewatin Patricia District School Board explains the tradition behind the event.

“It's a great opportunity for our community to get together and celebrate our Indigenous heritage, as well as respecting our traditional area. It's a great time to get our students from Dryden High School, as well as students from across our board, and it's open to the community as well,” she said.

McMonagle says that it's a great experience for the students.

“Our students take great pride in being able to help and support each other in the planning of the celebration. I think it's a positive thing for our students to be able to come together and show their pride through the event, and it's a great opportunity for students to learn about their culture and heritage as well,” she said.

The Pow Wow will be taking place on the traditional meeting place of the Ojibwa people of the region, on the Harry McMaster Field at DHS. The celebration will be outside if the weather permits, or inside the gym if it rains.
