The 1st Annual University of New Brunswick Fredericton Mawio'mi Siqonawsultipon Powwow was held this past March with the theme “Honouring and Sharing Mi'kmaq & Wolastoqey Cultures.”

The Mi'kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (MWC), located on traditional territory of Wolastoqiyik at the University of New Brunswick Fredericton, provides a learning environment for indigenous students to develop a strong cultural foundation as well as academic and professional skills, and offers opportunities for all UNB students and faculty to become familiar with Mi'kmaq and Wolastoqey histories, cultures, contributions and treaty rights through principles of respect, sharing, harmony, acceptance and unity in diversity.

They recently released footage from the pow wow and it looks like they did a great job for their first event! Take a look at the video below.

UNB / MWC's 2nd Annual Powwow will be held on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016 from 12 to 5PM at UNB's Currie Center. Make sure you check it out if you're in the area!
