2019 Indigenous celebration includes an Education Week and Saturday social, vendor market
The Ryerson Pow Wow returns September 20 and 21, promising two days of Indigenous culture, arts, teachings, song, drumming and dance.
Hosted by Saagajiwe, a transdisciplinary Indigenous centre for research and creation based in the Faculty of Communication and Design, the powwow will be from 12 to 6 p.m. on September 20 in the Kerr Hall Quad – returning to the original space it was held in the 1990s. Having an annual powwow is one of the recommendations of Ryerson’s community consultation report in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
New this year will be an Education Week from Sept. 16 to 20 full of educational programming, workshops, panels and film screenings. On Saturday, the quad will have a community social, barbecue and vendor market from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
