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.
This exhibition is on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) until February 27, 2021. Book your visit today!
