Michael Flat Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador

Fair address: Western Newfoundland Regional Heritage Fair

Project: Bay St. George Pow Wow

My project is about the powwow. I have included dancers, drummers, information and lots of nice photos.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most important thing I learned about my project is how important and sacred everything at the powwow is.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Important lessons I want to share with other Canadians are the powwow rules of etiquette which includes 20 rules that should always be followed at a powwow.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I would compare my life with those I studied in my project by the way of life by going in the woods and knowing your way around.

Project partially funded by the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage.
