The theme for the 2019 Ermineskin Cree National Traditional Pow Wow held June 5 to 7 at Maskwacis Bear Park was “Honouring our grandmothers and mothers.”

The grand entry on Sunday afternoon, July 7, was dedicated to missing and murdered Indigenous women. Female dancers were the first to lead in this grand entry to honour grandmothers and mothers.

Every year, hundreds of dancers from all over North America come out to this pow wow. Four grand entries feature drumming, dancing, and singing.

dancers compete in categories such as men’s and women’s traditional, men’s chicken and women’s jingle dancing, and over 50 and special teen and junior categories.
