Champion of Champions
The Grand River ‘Champion of Champions’ Powwow Committee is a group of highly motivated, community spirited volunteers who have for the past three decades, staged and organized, on behalf of the Six Nations of the Grand River, a Aboriginal Multicultural event, annually the fourth weekend of July; so as to promote our rich arts heritage by showcasing our ‘pride’ in music, dance, arts and crafts.
Many Native Americans from the United States now participate as well. The forum for this expression in the arts has been coined a “Powwow” and is always presented with the utmost dignity. The event takes place in the open-air, during the afternoon and on into the evening under lights. It has been held at Chiefswood Tent & Trailer Park, on the grounds of the former Estate of the Mohawk Poetess E. Pauline Johnson, at the Six Nations of the Grand River Community.
