The Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation (MSIFN) Powwow is an annual gathering and celebration of Indigenous culture that takes place on Scugog Island, Port Perry Ontario. The powwow features a variety of traditional ceremonies, dances, and songs, and it is an opportunity for Indigenous people to come together to celebrate life, honour people past and present, and share part of our culture with others from across North America.  The MSIFN Powwow is a significant event in the community, and we invite you to join us!

The Powwow is open to everyone, and while anyone is welcome to attend, it's important to remember that Powwows are celebrations of Indigenous culture and traditions. Visitors are reminded to treat them with respect and understanding.  We encourage you to visit our Powwow etiquette section of this page to learn more.
