Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Grand River Métis Council (GRMC) representatives participated in the 8th Annual Traditional Pow Wow at Conestoga College in Kitchener on Feb. 24.

MNO GRMC President Jennifer Parkinson proudly carried the Métis flag in both the grand entry and the closing retreat.

Councillors and citizens provided a display table and answered questions about Métis history and culture.

Throughout the event there was drumming and singing, as well as dancing, traditional food, artisans and crafts. The potato dance was a huge hit.

The MNO GRMC enjoyed participating in the event and it looks forward to being part of the powwow again next year.
