Archive: 2006 Pow Wow Overview

The 3 Grand Entries are the spectacular highlight of the Canadian Aboriginal Festival. The entire family will enjoy the visually stunning display as nearly 1000 native dancers and drum singing groups from across North America join together on the floor of the SkyDome.

Each of the Pow Wow ceremonies begins with the Grand Entry, when all dancers enter the Dance Circle for the first time. The pageantry and drama of the Grand Entry make it one of the most beautiful traditional Aboriginal ceremonies and a must see for anyone interested in native culture and customs.

The Grand Entries this year, three - Saturday at 1:00 p.m., Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and again on Sunday at noon, will feature colour parties from at least twelve foreign countries.

For those not familiar with Pow Wows, it is one of the oldest, most important and colourful Aboriginal ceremonies.

Pow Wows traditionally have been dedicated to warriors and a way of giving thanks to the Creator for all that Mother Earth provides for Her people. In short a "Thanksgiving" ceremony.

The Pow Wow is the center piece of the Canadian Aboriginal Festival with visitors from all parts of Canada and around the world gathered in Toronto at the Rogers Centre to witness this most beautiful traditional ceremony.

Please note: all peoples of all races and creeds are invited. In fact you do us honour by attending this great offering to the Creator.
