...Manito Ahbee Pow Wow...

The name Manito Ahbee references a sacred site located in Manitoba’s Whiteshell Provincial Park, where First Nations traditionally gathered to share teachings and wisdom. Manito Ahbee means “where the Creator sits.”

There are a number of petroforms at this special site, including one in the shape of the turtle. Since the festival is a continental event, the turtle also represents Turtle Island, which is another name for North America.
