An Old Wooden Lighthouse

By Linda Tancs

A Canadian province, Prince Edward Island’s oldest wooden lighthouse is located on Panmure Island. Open seasonally from June to October, Panmure Island Lighthouse offers enviable views of the white sand beach, one of PEI’s most popular. Later this month the area also hosts an annual powwow, featuring drum bands, native crafts and a sweat lodge. Panmure Island is part of the Points East Coastal Drive touring region.

A Gathering of Nations

By Linda Tancs

North America’s largest powwow is the Gathering of Nations event in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The festival kicks off on April 27 with the Miss Indian World talent presentations, followed by two days of colorful Native American powwow dancing and singing. Over 2,500 indigenous dancers and singers representing more than 500 tribes from Canada and the United States come to the Gathering of Nations annually to participate socially and competitively. The family friendly event also includes an arts and crafts bazaar and musical entertainment across genres. The fun takes place at Tingley Coliseum/Expo.
