Powwow! Ohcîwin The Origins

September 26, 2020 to February 27, 2021

Ohcîwin is a Cree word meaning “The Origin” or telling of a story where something originated.

Powwow! Ohcîwin The Origins features 7 powwow dance styles, with full Regalia and craft work.  Curators and creators, Patrick Mitsuing and Marrisa Mitsuing, have gathered the stories, worked with the Artisans, and carefully built the Regalia for this exhibition.

See a travelling version of this exhibit as part of the First Annual Red Deer International Powwow from October 22-24, 2021 at the Westerner Hall Exhibition Park!
