SHEGUIANDAH FIRST NATION—The Sheguiandah community’s annual Jiingtamok (powwow) that was originally scheduled for the first weekend in July will happen this weekend, Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18.

Organizer Pearl Waindubence notes that on Saturday, there will only be one grand entry because of the shorter days in mid-September. This will take place at the powwow grounds at 1:00 pm. Sunday’s grand entry is at 12:30 pm.

Of course, there will be vendors and food and the weekend weather is expected to be fine.

The event was re-scheduled because of a community tragedy in late June.

The day chosen corresponds with the birthday of the late Gord Waindubence, one of the event’s founders.
