Akisqnuk National Aboriginal Day Festival

Today the Akisqnuk Nation held their annual festival at Lakeshore Camp Ground, just south of Windermere.

There was a whole day of events planned, music, dancing, speeches, etc, just a pity we couldn't stay longer to catch them all!

One of the coolest things of the day, though, was running into Robert Ede of the Under Swansea blog. It was a bit strange ... out of nowhere he introduced himself to me ... knowing exactly who I was ... because of the camera gear I was carrying! How cool is that?! It was great to meet you, Robert!

Unfortunately, the weather was a bit dismal today, so all the activities were held under a tent. Nice if you want to keep out of the spit-spotting rain, not so great if you want to take great pictures!

Here are a few of the photo's I took ... nothing to write home about quality-wise, but I hope you enjoy the content, nevertheless!


  1. These are great photos! I really enjoy trying to tell a story with my photos. These definitely do. Nice work!

  2. Thanks for your comments, Karen! Really appreciate your input! T.

  3. Hi Tanya, it was great to meet you. Thanks for coming over to Lakeshore. I count myself lucky to be associated with this event. I am sure we will meet again.
