The first one happens Wednesday night at the Friendship Centre. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., there is a bannock burger meal with a talent show being held.
On Sunday, a celebration will take place at the Amphitheater in Muskoseepi Park. The event is called “Honouring All My Relations”. It will feature jigging and fiddling. There will also be an award ceremony and activities for the kids. The event is organized by the Native Counselling of Alberta.

Teepee Creek School, Benzanson and Ridgevalley Schools, Penson School and Hythe Regional School are all taking part in activities. These include singing, jigging, storytelling and drumming.
