With so many events going on in Thunder Bay each summer it's sometimes hard to get out to most of them. Luckily, I found the time to head on over to the Marina and photograph some of Aboriginal Day. Surprisingly, this was my first time attending Aboriginal Day at the Marina. I'm so glad a I went as it was quite the celebration. The event started off with some opening remarks and speeches and then eventually the opening ceremonies and entrances.
It was very fun to watch and unfortunately that's all I could do as there was no photography allowed for the first 3 dances. And before I knew it I had to leave. Luckily I came back with Anne later in the evening and got some dancing photos then. When I was there in the morning I thought it was pretty busy but when I got back in the evening there were about 3 times as many people. It was great to see such a good turnout.
I'll definitely be on the lookout for any more upcoming pow wows. As a photographer they are a pleasure and a treat to photograph.
