ABORIGINAL FEAST for 9th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Monday October 29, 2012

October 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Cultural Sharing
ABORIGINAL FEAST
Monday October 29
5pm First Nations Dance Group in the Gym, everyone welcome
5:45pm Feast in the Theatre, see below for ticket information
Carnegie Community Centre Gym & Theatre, 401 Main

Culturally specific events bring a sense of belonging and camaraderie to an otherwise isolated and disenfranchised Aboriginal population. Carnegie’s weekly Cultural Sharing Program, now in its twenty-fourth year, offers First Nations people from across North America an opportunity to share cultural events such as Pow Wows, cultural trips, singing and drumming, and to make arts & crafts. For the Festival this year we have a special Aboriginal celebration with dancers, singers and drummers from the Coast Salish Territory and the Nisga’a tradition.

5pm Pre-Feast
The Kwhlii Gibaygum Nisga’a Traditional Performers will perform in the Carnegie gym on the second floor. Kwhlii Gibaykw literally translates to English from Nisga’a as ‘flying around.’ Look forward to a dynamic performance of song and dance. Come early to get a good spot. Free

5:45pm Feast
You will need a ticket for the Feast, see below for information.
We’ll gather in the theatre on Carnegie’s main floor where Sam George will do the territorial welcome. The Carnegie kitchen is planning a wonderful menu for a special feast to share. During the feast, Dalannah Gail Bowen will sing a few songs and Darcy Demas and Ocean Side Dakota will follow with drumming.

You will need a ticket for the dinner. Tickets are available on a first come first serve basis at the Cultural Sharing group on the afternoon of Monday October 22. On the day of the Feast you can pick up a ticket from the Carnegie 3rd floor program office (only available on Mon Oct 29). Any remaining tickets after 4:30pm will be available at the door of the Theatre, again on a first come first serve basis.
