Drummers from across Western Canada will be in Taylor this weekend for the 3rd annual Round Dance.

The event starts at 4 p.m. Feb. 17 at the community hall with a pipe ceremony, and a community feast and night of dancing to follow.

“It’s for everyone,” says Connie Greyeyes. “It really is community.”

Drummers from Saskatchewan and Northern Alberta will attend, while Greyeyes hopes to have drummers from Doig and Blueberry also in attendance. Stan Isadore of Driftpile, Alta., will serve as master of ceremonies for the event. George Desjarlais of Frog Lake, Alta., will serve as stickman.

The community celebration is being put on by Sisters in Spirit, Aboriginal Success by Six, and the District of Taylor.

There will be a giveaway ceremony, a midnight lunch, as well as a concession and 50/50 draw to support the 2018 Spirit of the Peace Powwow in June.

For more information, contact Greyeyes at 250-793-1468, or Wally White at 780-897-9255.
