Native culture takes centre stage as Fort William Historical Park in Thunder Bay celebrates Anishnawbe Keeshigun, beginning Friday evening, August 19th and running to Sunday, August 21st, 2011.
Anishnawbe Keeshigun pays homage to all First Nation peoples and their collective contribution to the fur trade and the evolution of Canada. Traditional singing, drumming and dancing highlight the festival along with craft demonstrations and samples of Aboriginal foods including Bakwezhigan (bannock), strawberry drink, wild rice, smoked fish as well as corn on the cob available at select times while quantities last.
A new component for the festival happens Friday evening with the presentation of a one-act play featuring Fort staff entitled, “Toronto at Dreamer’s Rock”, by Drew Hayden Taylor at 6:30 pm followed by a musical performance by Arvel Bird on the fiddle and flute at 9 pm, both happening in the Main Square.

Candy blinked and stifled a yawn.
“Because,” roared F with wild eyes, nearly startling Candy out of her seat, “the mole is not a real mole at all!”
“Okay, Doc, I believe you. Just chill, okay.”
