The Spirit of a Nation – my article about a great annual event

The new Bragg About the Creek magazine has just been published.  My article, The Spirit of a Nation, about the Tsuu T’ina First Nation’s Annual Pow Wow and Rodeo is included in this issue.  The article, more a photo essay, presents images and some of my thoughts from the past three celebrations.  If you are interested in viewing the article with text and high-resolution images, please click this link (note – the file is a 2.3 MB PDF).

I live in Redwood Meadows on Tsuu T’ina land and the Beaver Dome (where the Pow Wow takes place) and the rodeo grounds are just across the road.  My neighbours put on a collection of great events for young, old and everyone in-between.  I have always had a fantastic time and, if you have an opportunity to visit Bragg Creek this summer, consider checking out this year’s celebration which runs from July 26th to the 28th.
