A group of 25 dancers, drummers and singers from the Maskwacis Cree nations will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii in two weeks’ time to respond to an invitation to perform at the World Indigenous Peoples’ Conference on Education that will take place between May 19 and 26.

The group will comprise youth aged between 7 and 18 and they will be performing at the conference venue during the week-long event.

A fundraiser was organized at the Ermineskin High School on Friday, May 2 to support the youth group with their travel expenses and other arrangements with several Maskwacis corporate entities coming out in groups to give financial backing for the trip.

During the fundraising dinner, various traditional, chicken and grass dances were performed by the youth who will take the trip to Honolulu.
