Alexander – Warm weather and a positive spirit made for a successful opening day to this year’s Kipohtakaw Annual Traditional Pow-Wow. The Grand Entry took nearly 10 minutes, as all styles of dancer in their multi-coloured regalia made their way into the arena to the beat of the host drum and the patter of MC Douglas Bonaise.
Tribal Councillor Bernard Paul said that approximately 170 dancers and nine drum groups had registered prior to Saturday’s grand entry, with more dancers anticipated to sign up prior to the Sunday event.
