You will experience Elder's blessings, prayers and stories. First up at 6 p.m. is music and dance performances from Stoney Nakoda, Tsuut’ina and Blackfoot First Nations on the grass area, as is traditional. Next will be the Métis Nation of Alberta music and dancing at amphitheatre. We are thrilled to have fiddler Alex Kusturok join us this year!
