Summer Celebrations Underway

Posted by Val Fox on July 28, 2014 at 9:00 PM

It's that time of year when pow wow enthusiasts load vehicles and travel to various celebrations hosted by First Nations communities throughout North America. The following photos were taken July 20 at the Kainai Nation annual summer pow wow and rodeo here in southern Alberta.

                               Summer celebrations included midway, hand games and fire works.
