ABORIGINAL FEAST for 10th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2013 in Vancouver on Oct 28 2013
Monday October 28, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Carnegie Community Centre Theatre, 401 Main
See below for ticket information
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-fifth 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. The Carnegie kitchen is cooking up a delicious menu for the feast, and the Festival presents singers and drummers from the Coast Salish Territory and beyond: Sam George will welcome us to Coast Salish territory, and special guests Git Hayetsk Dancers led by Mike Dangeli will share traditional feast songs of the Northern Nations of the Northwest Coast. Admission is free but 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 21. On Monday October 28 only, the day of the Feast, the remaining tickets will be available from the Carnegie third fl oor program office. After 4:30pm on Monday, any remaining tickets will be available at the door of the Theatre on a first-come, first-serve basis. Free
This event was on Day 6 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
