ABORIGINAL FEAST for 12th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2015 in Vancouver on Nov 2 2015
Monday November 2, 5pm – 7:30pm
Carnegie Theatre, 401 Main
See below for ticket information, Free
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-seventh 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 and crafts. The Cultural Sharing program invites you to share this Aboriginal Feast with them.
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. Harmony of Nations will open and close the feast. Other guests include the pow wow drum group Starchild; Joe Chatsis will do a hoop dance; and Columpa Bobb, a special visiting artist from Winnipeg, will share stories about Raven. Our emcee is Ian Bee.
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 26. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door of the Theatre on a first-come first-serve basis.
This event was on Day 6 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!

AHA Media gives voice to our local community and provides services for individuals and organizations to share their news and special events on a broader scale through social media. Founded in 2008 by local artists April Smith, Hendrik Beune, and Al Tkatch, AHA Media previously collaborated with Fearless City Media and has an ongoing working relationship with W2Community Media Arts and various other organizations and individuals in the DTES community. The members of AHA Media describe themselves as “definitely not mainstream media”. Based in Vancouver’s DTES, their style is described as non-invasive and unassuming.
