The 34 Annual Ben Calf Robe Powwow was held in Edmonton on May 9, 2015 and photo-journalist Terry Lusty was on hand to take some beautiful images of the wonderful event. The opening prayer by Elder Betty Letendre launched a spectacular Grand Entry that included a host of First Nation leaders, educators, dancers and dignataries as well as volunteers, friends and families.
Organizer Rhonda Metallic was thrilled with the turn out which was in excess of 3000 participants and visitors by the end of the day. Click here for more information about the event and scroll down for a photo gallery by Terry Lusty.
