2019 Pow Wow in pictures

Nineteenth annual Pow Wow attracts throngs of Montrealers, young and old, to lower campus

The sounds of traditional Indigenous drumming and singing rolled across McGill’s lower campus on Friday, Sept. 20, as the 19th annual Pow Wow was held underneath the big tent just in front of Redpath Museum.

Encouraged by picture-perfect weather, throngs of Montrealers and members of the McGill community took in the annual celebration of Indigenous cultures, cheering on performers, snapping pictures and taking part in various dances. The day featured everything from Inuit throat singers to a hoop dance demonstration.

Always a highlight of the fall semester, this year’s Pow Wow fell at the midway point of Indigenous Awareness Weeks, which will end on Friday, Sept. 27.
