2017 MCFN GIR Cultural Retreat

2017 marked our 12th annual MCFN GIR Cultural Retreat. It took place in Fort Chipewyan at the arbour in Doghead on August 16th and 17th. It was two days filled with great music by Richard Woodman and band, delicious food cooked by local caterers and activities aimed at strengthening the relationship between our MCFN Elders, Industry and Government.
We’d like to thank all the volunteers, the MCFN Summer Students, our hilarious MC Kendrick Cardinal, the Metis Summer Students, ...AJ Courtoreille, Dwayne Castor, the MCFN Elder’s that assisted with the cultural demo’s, Mikisew Tech and all the sponsors that contributed to help make this event happen!
