Te’ Pakohp celebrates cultural riches

The Aboriginal School of Dance presents Te’ Pakohp which will celebrate the seven traditional teachings of the First Nations People through inspiration and imagination.

With the support of Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, Vickar Automotive Group and the RBC Convention Centre, this four day event will take place June 11-14 on the third floor of the Convention Centre and feature entertainment in celebration of Aboriginal Day followed by interactive cultural displays.

“Our vision is to create a positive ripple effect on our community as a whole,” said event organizer Buffy Handel, Aboriginal School of Dance. “We want to bring people together as we continue to understand and appreciate our shared history of this great province.”

“Each day we will present a cultural production consisting of an inspiring and eye-popping show that is highly entertaining while offering a great opportunity to learn more about and emotionally connect to the seven traditional teachings – love, respect, honesty, courage, humility, wisdom and truth.  Our interactive cultural area will demonstrate traditional drumming, language, baby carriers, Pow Wow dance as well as feature a special performance by internationally renowned Native American puppeteer Buddy Big Mountain from Las Vegas.”

Te’ Pakohp will explore the beauty of Manitoba’s cultural riches and celebrate the original peoples that make up the fabric of all of our history here on Turtle Island.
