The Pow Wow is the Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk First Nation's most important annual cultural event.

The Pow Wow is a gathering of songs and drums, traditional dances, traditional clothing, Aboriginal artisans, demonstrations of various skills and Aboriginal foods. It celebrates cultural heritage, while serving as a platform for intercultural exchange with visitors and non-native participants. This major cultural event is celebrated every year. It allows us to perpetuate our traditions and culture, and proudly reaffirm our Wolastoqey identity.

It takes place on the Pointe de Cacouna site, a historic gathering place for the Wolastoqiyik people, named Ktopeqonok, meaning "where there's a water source". This site is part of the Wahsipekuk community's "reserve" lands.

Edition 2024, August 17 and 18 from 12pm to 5pm, Saturday and Sunday.
