On Saturday, January 18th, the public is invited to join hands to celebrate friendship, family, diversity, and inclusivity at the 14th Annual Miskanawah Friendship Round Dance.

Steeped in tradition, the Round Dance is a healing ceremony that honours the memories of loved ones through singing, dancing, and a cultural feast. This event brings thousands of people together to celebrate First Nations culture. Local Indigenous artists will showcase original works of art, jewelry, and textiles, which will be available for sale.

“The Miskanawah Friendship Round Dance is a place where diverse perspectives, cultures, and values are accepted, appreciated, and celebrated. This event is a stepping stone for newcomers and Calgarians of Indigenous and non-Indigenous backgrounds to establish social connections and community networks. It is a form of social gathering that creates a sense of belonging in a safe, welcoming environment,” says Kirby Redwood, Miskanawah CEO.
The public is invited to join in the celebration and experience the power of friendship and community at the 14th Annual Miskanawah Friendship Round Dance at the Genesis Centre on Saturday, January 18th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. Donations will be accepted at the door. Proceeds from this event will go towards supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families throughout Calgary.
Miskanawah (mis-con-a-wa), Cree for “many little roads and paths,” is a non-profit organization that works with children, youth, and families to build skills and resiliency. We work from a solutions-focused and strength-based perspective towards healing, strength, and reconciliation for Calgarians.
