Seven drums. Sixty dancers. Hundreds of relatives, friends and supporters. It was a cloudy day at the Forks National Historic Site, but we paid no mind to the drizzle outside the tent! Inside, the beat of the drum kept feet moving and spirits high.
A pageant was held to select the 2018 Two-Spirit Ogichidaa/Ogichidaakwe. Here are the winners, Sky Peebles and Brielle Beardy-Linklater (who also served as the Pride Parade Grand Marshall on Sunday).
Thank you to everyone who made this a wonderful day — dancers, drummers, sponsors, contributors to our crowdfunding campaign, volunteers and staff.
See you next year!
