WFN Community Members;

JEDI’s Pow Wow Photo Contest is a great way to Promote Indigenous Culture

Pow Wows are one of the many social gatherings that take place in many First Nation communities. They showcase cultural pride and allow you to experience Indigenous culture along with making new friends, joining in on dancing and singing, and sharing traditional foods. Pow Wows are also free of charge and welcome everyone.  

To help celebrate, JEDI is holding our 4th annual photo contest for each of the 11 Pow Wows in New Brunswick. To enter, submit your favourite Pow Wow photos or short videos to JEDI’s Facebook page or to to be eligible to win a $50 gift card to a local business establishment. In addition, all entries that are submitted by the end of the Pow Wow trail will be eligible for a chance to win the grand prize that is valued up to $500.

The 2017 Pow Wow trail will begin in St. Mary’s First Nation this weekend, June 16-18th and travels to communities throughout New Brunswick ending with the last pow wow of the season in Kingsclear First Nation in September.

JEDI is proud to announce that we now have two sponsors supporting this year’s Pow Wow photo contest. We are very excited to announce that the RBC Royal Eagles will once again support us as our Gold Sponsor and ARC (Aboriginal Resource Consultants) has come on as our Silver Sponsor. Without their support, we could not continue this great contest, so Thank You
