This is one of our favourite, traditional, Pow Wows – inside the historic palisades of the Museum of Ontario Archaeology – the 10th annual Harvest Festival & Pow Wow!

A wonderful collection of crafts, food, cultural presentations, workshops, dancing & drums from many First Nations – two days of fun & education for the whole family!

Among other presenters this year, Seika will be sharing her knowledge about Haudenosaunee style clay pipes (like the ones we have for sale). Their history/use, how they’re made and how to recognize pieces in the field.
