Powwow

One of the last Indian Powwows held in Ponoka is shown in front of Algar’s store in 1920 at the corner of 50th street and 51st Avenue.

A very popular event in the early years of our community was the arrival by horse and wagons of hundreds of native families from the Hobbema area, who set up their teepees in the Battle River valley. The visitors would spend several days in town, bartering with the friendly merchants, and performing colorful dances and games for citizens and guests from far and wide!
