The Métis-Native American Indian Festival opened the Tatanka Festival and White Cloud’s Birthday celebration Thursday in the Frontier Village Amphitheater.
Thursday’s morning presentation featured the Native American Indian culture of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa in dances and songs, emceed by Verlyn Dubois. He said his people consider themselves as spiritual, using God and the Creator interchangeably and blending their Christian heritage with the traditional Ojibwe and Chippewa culture. The culture reflects that blending.
Members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa have held an early Memorial Day celebration.
They traveled Tuesday to the Metis cemetery in northeastern Pembina County to pray and honor their ancestors.
