Registration is now open for the 2021 Fort William First Nation #VirtualPowwow!

This powwow will be held online on July 3rd, and you can register to watch this unique event at https://www.fwfn.live/powwow21.

We’ve had some questions about how an online Powwow will work – it’s new for us, too!

  • Our sunrise ceremony will be filmed, and some performers will be pre-recorded and others joining us live through Zoom to create a seamless virtual day of ceremony, dance, and drumming that you can watch safely from your home.
  • Elder Jimmy Misquart and Emcee Dustin Gagne as well as other special guests will be joining us online to share their stories and introduce our performers!

We miss seeing our members and neighbours in person, and hope we will again soon, but we’ll try to bring some of that Powwow feeling to our community not only here in FWFN, but who can now join us from across Canada and the world.
