Ken Dryden and Ken Boshcoff Visit

On September 3, 2009  the Community of Nigigoonsiminikaaning First Nation was eagerly awaiting the arrival of two special guests to our Community.  For weeks now the Community has been anticipating the arrival of two dignitaries -Ken Boshcoff and Ken Dryden.

Both Boshcoff and Dryden are large supporters of the Liberal riding, Dryden is well known for his 6 wins of the Stanley Cup while he played with the Montreal Canadians. Today, we were proud to have them in our Community discussing the Traditional Beliefs and Culture of the Anishinaabeg Peoples.

The visit started off with one of the communities traditional drum groups entertaining us with their ever amazing voices of the strong values and beliefs as they teach us through their drum.  As the afternoon progressed, we were delighted to have Boshcoff and Dryden take a tour of the Pow wow grounds with Chief Gary Allen of Nigigoonsiminikaaning First Nation.
