We were lucky and could visit the Powwow on the occasion of the opening of the Campus of First Nations University in Regina. But you will find them all over the country and at least once a year in Regina.

The ranchers are waiting every day for opening the US borders for the Canadian cattle. They always watch the daily news, hoping to hear something good about this isue.
