Kahnawake's Echoes of a Proud Nation Powwow was cancelled this year because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but a small group of dancers from the Mohawk community had the opportunity to put on their moccasins and dance over the weekend.

On Sunday, the Kateri Memorial Hospital Centre organized a mini powwow outside its building for the elders and residents in long-term care. Patients inside were able to see the powwow from their rooms, as well as from an enclosed balcony that overlooks the street.

The afternoon included a grand entry, traditional Haudenosaunee songs and dances, as well as an honour song for frontline workers.
