Ktunaxa assembly open to public


You might be noticing a lot of Ktunaxa pride in the Creston area between July 24-26, as the Ktunaxa Nation will be hosting their 34th Annual  General Assembly in Lower Kootenay. The AGA rotates between the Ktunaxa Communities, and the last time it was held in  Lower Kootenay was in 2007.

The AGA is a time for Ktunaxa Citizens to connect with each other, and learn more about the programs and services available to them through the Ktunaxa Nation Council.

Although the day-time meetings have a Ktunaxa focus, the pow wow on Wednesday July 24th will be open to all residents in the surrounding area. The pow wow will take place at 7 p.m. at the Lower Kootenay Arbour, and will feature many drum groups and dancers from around the Nation. There will also be an opportunity for “inter-tribal” dances, in which non-Ktunaxa guests will be invited to get up and dance as well.

“This as great opportunity to connect with our neighbours who live in Ktunaxa Territory,” said Kathryn Teneese, Ktunaxa Nation Chair. “We welcome you to come to the pow wow and learn more about Ktunaxa, and enjoy in the dancing and celebration.”
