Listuguj First Nation Pow Wow

On the weekend while our US friends were visiting, we drove to Campbellton and crossed the bridge into Quebec.
We attended the Listuguj Pow Pow which was being held in Quebec.
These are some of the baskets that were made by the local people and offered for sale.
Some baskets were made by the children, as young as Grade II.
The moccasins were very nice and well made.  They were much better quality than ones I bought out West last year, for the same price.  I will keep these in mind for later shopping.
The bead work was very eye catching.

We found that the dress of the Listuguj First Nations to be very colourful.  Here are some of the dancers we saw at the Pow Wow.
It was a very interesting event for us and we would not have attended if our friends had not suggested it and we are happy that they did.  Paul and I will mark our calendar to attend the Pabineau First Nation Pow Wow in our area early in July 2013.

  1. I've never had the opportunity to attend a Pow Wow - it looks really interesting. My favorite photo is the second to last one - I clicked on it to enlarge and it was worth it to see the designs on the costumes.
