Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation Annual Traditional Pow Wow

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and with great regret, the Council has decided to cancel the 2020 Nawash Pow Wow. This highly anticipated event would have been the 36th annual pow wow. It is one of the highlights of our summer, requiring months of planning. Provincial leaders, however, are still only tentatively talking about re-opening the economy, and there is no clear direction yet what that re-opening might look like, or what schedule it will follow. Given the amount of uncertainty about the duration and severity of the pandemic, and the lack of detail in the provincial re-opening plan to date, Council determined that the Pow Wow cannot be held safely and responsibly this year.

We look forward to hosting this event, even bigger and better in 2021!
