Wendake, Meeting Grounds of Nations 2004 Edition.
Wendake, Meeting Ground of Nations (« Wendake, Carrefour des Nations » in French) is an inter-tribal cultural and tourist event annually held at the end of July in the community of Wendake. The 2004 edition will be the third edition of the event, and has been strongly recommended by every visitors and participants of previous years.
Wendake, Meeting Ground of Nations is really a two-part experience: its composed of both a Native Contemporary Art Festival and a more traditional Pow Wow. This year, the artistic festival will be held on July 22nd and 23rd, and the Annual Pow Wow of Wendake on July 24th and 25th.
The Native Contemporary Art Festival
The Festival is an inter-tribal event where the public can discover and appreciate Native talents in music. Its a place where the professional Native musicians can expand their following by offering refreshing, original, and high quality artistic experiences. The Festival always showcases diverse types of shows in the contemporary styles: rock, blues, pop, classical, humor, folk, country, etc. The Festival presents some newcomers, as well as established musicians and artists.
