The Second Annual Two-Spirit Pow Wow, June 2, 2018

 

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!

The 2nd Annual Two-Spirit Pow Wow Needs You!

 

Last year was a great success because of incredible community support and we are looking forward to another amazing celebration this year, hosted by Like That @ Sunshine House and the Two-Spirited People of Manitoba. This Pow Wow is the only one of its kind in the territory known as Canada, and it brings hundreds of people together to dance and sing — we invite you to be a part of that as well.

The organizing committee of this event is completely volunteer, and to host this event according to Pow Wow protocols we need to fundraise $20,000. This unique Pow Wow showcases the gifts of Two-Spirit people to the world and we are calling on the wider community to financially support this incredibly powerful and exciting event.

TO GIVE, VISIT: https://fundrazr.com/2nd2SPowWow

Donations of $25 or more can request a tax receipt. All donors will receive special recognition at the Pow Wow!

If you or your organization is interested in a sponsorship or advertising in the Pow Wow program, please email comms@sunshinehousewpg.org.

Drag Taco Sale 2018 = SUCCESS

 

We didn’t know if it was going to happen. The whispers were heard across central Winnipeg, from Sherbrook Street to Selkirk Avenue. “Will the Queens return? Will they deign to descend and deliver to us delicious bannock tacos?”

The Queens heard the call of the people and so they agreed: Friday, April 20 would be the appointed day that the Drag Queens of Like That would bring the people tacos, all to raise funds for the upcoming Second Annual Two-Spirit Pow Wow on June 2.

Thank you to all our friends and supporters who ordered tacos to be delivered homes and businesses, churches and barbershops, rec centres and workshops and the Legislative Building, too!

Thank you to all the volunteers who hustled to get 500 pieces of bannock out on the roads and into people’s mouths!

If you missed out on the sale but still want to support the Two-Spirit Pow Wow, you can donate to the event any time at this link: http://bit.ly/2nd2SPowWow.
