(Hello and Welcome Everyone. Now we will raise our Spirits once again in celebration!)
In this edition of “In Conversation With…”, host Rob Curwain welcomes both Charlene Bomberry, Chair of the Grand River Champion of Champions Pow Wow, and Kathy Smith, Artistic Director of the North American Indigenous Games. Together, the three discuss this year’s Champion of Champions Pow Wow (which also ties in with this year’s North American Indigenous Games).
Topics covered in the program include: How is the Champion of Champions Pow Wow associated with the North American Indigenous games? What is a Pow Wow? Why is it called the ‘Champion of Champions’ Pow Wow? What makes this Pow Wow unique? Are there any rules or etiquette to follow at a Pow Wow? The ladies also provide a breakdown and explanation of various events and terminologies.
