The one-day event, scheduled for Sept. 14 at Marina Park,

It developed out of the Wake the Giant movement, which encourages local businesses to showcase inclusiveness and show the city’s Indigenous population, especially students that they’re welcomed and wanted.
The lineup also includes Crown Lands, an up-and-coming Aboriginal band, Nick Ferrio, Wolf Saga, Ansley Simpson, Luke Warm and the Cold Ones and local favourites, the Battle Nation Drum Group.
The festival will also feature a two-day workshop for Grade 7 and 8 students from remote communities, a chance to work with the artists in an up-close-and-personal setting in the two days leading up to the event.
Tickets go on sale on Saturday and are available at www.wakethegiant.ca

Red Rock Indian Band Opwaaganisiniing Traditional Gathering

Rock 94 is proud to support the Red Rock Indian Band Opwaaganisiniing Traditional Gathering

July 19th- 21st, 2019

The Red Rock Indian Band hosts its annual Traditional Gathering every third weekend in July. It is a two and a half day event offers cultural crafts and cuisine, as well as traditional dancing and music. The gathering provides 2 feasts, one on Saturday and one on Sunday for all participants to enjoy at no cost.
The Meaning of Pow Wow
The term "Pow Wow" is the non-aboriginal's version of the Aboriginal term "Pau-Wau", which originally stood for a healing ceremony conducted by the Spiritual Leaders of various Tribes. The Aboriginal Nations used this gathering of tribes of many peoples for religious and spiritual ceremonial meetings, giving thanks to the Great Spirit for the Healing Rituals. The Anishinaabek passed this ritual on through generations to keep our traditional culture and history alive. Finally, it connects us with our past, present, and future, keeping harmony and balance spiritually and physically, and that is what unites us as One.
