The Calling All Drums Multicultural Powwow will be back again this summer, thanks to a strong first event and a financial boost from the federal government.

The federal government recently provided an $18,600 boost to the community powwow in Rocky Mountain House which will be July 12-15.

The Calling All Drums Multicultural Powwow representatives received a Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage grant from Wetaskiwin MP Blaine Calkins during a visit to Rocky Mountain House recently.

The event is going into its second year and will take place at the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site. Last year’s event drew over 5,000 people.

The powwow is meant to honour and celebrate native culture through dance and draw aboriginal and non-aboriginal people together. It features traditional dancing and drummers that brings visitors from across Canada.

Calling All Drums also coordinates with the site’s annual Legends and Legacies event which has re-enactments and other interactive demonstrations to re-live stories of Canadian history.

More information about the event is available by calling 403-845-2412 or visiting the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site website at
