40th Annual Ben Calf Robe Traditional Pow Wow

Indigenous culture and traditions celebrated at Clarke Stadium.

The Ben Calf Robe Annual Traditional Pow Wow celebrated its 40th anniversary on May 11th at Clarke Stadium. 

This year’s theme was “Honouring Our Sacred Languages.” The Pow Wow featured dancing, drumming, and singing from hundreds of participants of all ages. In addition, there were artisans selling crafts, and food trucks offering a variety of treats and meals.

The event was presented by Edmonton Catholic Schools, Indigenous Learning Services, and Ben Calf Robe Society, in partnership with the City of Edmonton and Football Alberta. As always, it was free to attend and open to anyone to experience.

Here are some photos from the first Grand Entry, held at 1 p.m. that afternoon.
