The celebration of our first people will also include: Cultural Extravaganza and Food and Craft Exhibitions from September 1-5, Indigenous Art Exhibition September 7-29, Celebration of the Life and Work of Stephen Campbell September 10, National Village Day September 15, Educational Tour September 10-14, Educational Lecture Series September 7-28, Heritage Sports September 21-23 and the Annual Heritage Dinner September 29.
