From March 18-19, 2023, people from across Canada and the US will be travelling to experience world-class Indigenous singing and dancing, right here in Southern Alberta at the inaugural Lead by Example Powwow; a cross-cultural, community celebration and full contest Powwow in honour of Kakato'si Kristian Ayoungman.
In the award-winning documentary, Ayoungman, Melodie Ayoungman challenges two communities to work together and learn about one another. Siksika Nation and the Town of Strathmore are on a journey to do just that, and in the process create a movement.
This powwow is an important next step for the Town of Strathmore and entire region’s reconciliation efforts; a step we are proud to take with Siksika Nation.
Join alongside as we deepen relationships, build partnerships, and inspire people through the power of powwow.
Your donation to and support of the Lead by Example Powwow is not merely an act of generosity, but it is also a reflection of your values and a commitment to making a positive impact in our region.
It's through the collective power of giving that we can create real change and build a better future for all. Whether you're donating time, money, or resources, know that your contribution matters and will make a profound difference in the lives of others.
All contributions to the Lead by Example Powwow will go towards the success of this event. From sound systems and tabulators, to host drums and dancer payout - every dollar will be put towards making the Lead by Example Powwow a remarkable event.
*Any surplus funds will be put towards regional reconciliation activities and scholarship opportunities in Kakato'si Kristian Ayoungman's name.
