First Nations University of Canada (FNUC) 37th
Annual Spring Celebration Pow Wow
Once again SIGA was a Thunderbird sponsor of FNUC’s
spring Pow Wow which was held April 11th and 12th,
2015 in Regina. Marking the Pow Wow’s 37th year,
FNUC’s annual spring celebration Pow Wow is the first of
the season and is considered by many as the official “kick-
off” to the annual pow wow season. It is a celebration of
spring and a sharing of First Nations culture through song,
dance, ceremony and craft that adds to the diversity and
cultural mosaic of Saskatchewan.
Along with being a significant tourist draw, the FNUC Pow
Wow is one of the largest events of its kind attracting over
7,000 visitors and more than 800 dancers and singers
from across Canada and the United States.
