Capital Power was proud to present the Bissell Centre Memorial Round Dance on October 25, 2012.
The Round Dance is a traditional Aboriginal ceremonial event held as a memorial for those who have passed on. To many Plains First Nations, this sacred spiritual ceremony is one of the few opportunities to honour the lives that are no longer with us. In 2011, more than 800 Aboriginal people came together to celebrate the lives of approximately 50 community members.
Capital Power Senior Vice President Kathryn Chisholm participates as a Board Member for the Bissell Centre.
