Pow Wow Club
ESOMS Pow Wow Club meets once a week during lunch hour. With the
help of experienced instructors from the community, students learn
Indigenous teachings related to Pow Wow and certain Pow Wow protocols (how a
Pow Wow is run). Students have the opportunity to design their own regalia while learning the
various dance styles including Jingle and Fancy Shawl for girls and Grass and
Traditional for boys. Students will perform in the Seven Oaks
Graduation Pow Wow, where they will be honoured as new Seven Oaks Pow Wow
dancers. This club is open to all students.
