The Micmac (or Mi'kmaq) community at Conne River (or Miawpukek) have been holding an annual Powwow on the Reserve since 1995. The event has become a popular attraction for people throughout the province. After some warm up singing, drumming and dancing, the participants of the Grand Entrance Parade lined up ready to begin the main festivities. The regalia on display were amazing. There were groups of men dressed in elaborate feathered regalia for dancing, women with their fancy shawls, and the chief leading the parade with his magnificent headdress.
We drove back to Lewisporte that night and on Sunday we did a bit more exploring of the area around Lewisporte before starting the journey back to town.
Here are some more pictures from our weekend:
And two years ago this week we visited Cupids Cove Plantation, an archaeological dig and Provincial Historic Site, and had our annual family reunion at the cabin.
