Ceremony, art marks National Indigenous Peoples Day in Winnipeg linkedin Back Posted June 21, 2023 6:51 pm Global News linkedin Increase article font size Lines of people in ribbon skirts and traditional wares held hands and walked through The Forks Wednesday afternoon during a powwow to mark National Indigenous Peoples Day. Tipis marked the grounds of the national historic site and voices wailed the songs of their ancestors. Strips of colourful leather regalia bounced off the bodies as attendees danced to the traditional sounds. “It’s nice to see people healing,” said Wayne Mason Jr, organizer of the powwow, at the grounds of The Forks as drums beat to the tune of ceremonial songs. “That’s what all of our ceremonies is about — not just about the healing of ourselves, but this country.” 0:26 Round Dance takes place in heart of Winnipeg to recognize Red Dress Day That healing comes after Indigenous people faced over a century of oppression under the Indian Act and residential school systems, with some seeing the tide finally turning.

The gallery also hosted events in to celebrate the day in an effort to continue the conversation of honoring Indigenous art and culture.
