A great meeting of the First Nation People was held in Wikwemikong Thunderbird Park Manitoulin Island Ontario and although we attended the Sudbury Pow Wow just a week before we decided not to miss this one because it was a huge gathering from Canada and the US.
The Pow Wow circle was formed by colorful dancers from all ages,it was so nice to see the respect to the elders and the tradition handed from one generation to the other.
The music , the dances are very catchy and it is difficult to stay sited ,so Shula joined the circle and was swept away by this almost hypnotic atmosphere.
The strong unique music is played by drummers sitting in circle using the drums and their voices, some times hitting very high notes ,they reach these high notes by pressing their vocals with their fingers.
We had a chance to be photographed with one of the Chiefs that was happy to welcome us to this big event.
It sure was a fantastic fascinating authentic fest-we enjoyed it very much.
