National Aboriginal Day held at Lakeshore Resort and CampgroundPosted: June 19, 2012

National Aboriginal Day Festival was held June 16 at Lakeshore Resort and Campground in Windermere.

The annual festival again proved to be a wonderful event for the entire family. Spectators enjoyed culturally prepared food, demonstrations and displays, face painting, music, dancing and drumming. The crowd was held spellbound by the Le La La Dancers, Mike Sanchez, Leon Cranebear and Eldene Stanley.

Special Guest speaker was Keith Henry, CEO from Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC.

This is the third year Akisqnuknik Development Corporation has offered the free festival celebrating Aboriginal culture in Canada. Please click on images to enlarge and to begin self-directed slide show.
