POWWOW — Dancers, drummers and dignitaries joined students, parents, teachers and administrators from Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools (GSCS) for the sixth annual GSCS Powwow June 23 at Thornton Park, near St. Frances Cree Bilingual School in Saskatoon. The powwow is a chance for First Nations and Métis students, teachers, staff and families to celebrate their culture and traditions. Elders, veterans and dancers of all ages were joined by community representatives and division trustees and administrators to start the day with the grand entry, led by the Young Thunder drummers. Dance competitions in different age categories were held throughout the day, with girls participating in jingle, fancy shawl, and traditional dances, while boys performed in fancy, grass, chicken, and traditional dance categories.
