The Provincial Capital Commission (PCC), partnering with Nature Saskatchewan, welcomes everyone to the Indigenous Celebration outdoor event Saturday, April 15, 2023, at Wascana Place to experience honour and celebrate Saskatchewan First Nations and Métis heritage.

“This event is a great occasion to honour and learn about the unique heritage, diverse cultures and exceptional contributions of First Nation and Métis people across our great province,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission and First Nations, Métis, and Northern Affairs Don McMorris said. “I encourage everyone to gather and participate in this interactive experience that will celebrate the coming of spring at Wascana Centre.”

There will be two sessions Saturday afternoon at the Wascana Centre at 2900 Wascana Drive in Regina. Pre-registration is required. Events include:

  • Quill working with Knowledge Keeper Holly Yuzicapi;
  • Mini Pow Wow – Lone Creek Dance Troupe;
  • Indigenous Elder Storytelling; and
  • Indigenous Games and Métis Art.

“Nature Saskatchewan is happy to partner with the PCC to promote learning and engagement to its visitors,” Nature Saskatchewan Conservation and Education Manager Shannon Chernick said. “We have a passion for building opportunities that inspire people to appreciate, learn and acknowledge Saskatchewan’s natural environment and history. We look forward to this event and many other events in the future.”
