Powwow returned after taking a two-year hiatus.

OCEAN MAN FIRST NATION – After two long years, Ocean Man First Nation was able to host a powwow at the Lost Horse Hills Powwow Grounds.

Powwows are particularly important to the Indigenous people. It is a gathering of nations, family and a way to celebrate life and to preserve traditions and ceremonies.

Weeks prior to the event, held from Sept. 9-11, the grass was manicured, and the buildings were cleaned and painted by the youths. Electrical was checked by Backcountry Electrical to ensure all lights and plug-ins were in working condition, and a new metal roof was placed by FSK Construction Services.
