MEET THE COMMUNITY – BEAVER LAKE CREE NATION & HEART LAKE FIRST NATION
Beaver lake and Heart Lake Cree Nations are full of traditional aboriginal cultural celebrations throughout the year.
Both first nations host an annual traditional Pow Wow competition with dancing and drumming. The Grand Entries to both events are very heart moving: as you feel the vibration from the drums beating around you, the jingling of bells from the dresses fills the air, and the sights of extravagant hand-made costumes and vibrant colours dance around you.
Another popular event held at both first nation’s is the annual quad rallies where riders and drivers from across the province come to ride trails through the first nation lands with pristine vistas and usually some good spots of mud that you may need an extra hand from other riders to pull you through. The rallies always include local entertainment and a tasty traditional supper.
