Quesnel Tillicum Society Annual Memorial Pow Wow is a yearly gathering where Indigenous People share their art, culture and heritage with the general public. A Pow Wow is a sacred social gathering held by many Indigenous communities in Canada. The people will sing, dance and pray for two days. This is an alcohol and drug free event.
