A powwow in Flat Bay marked a turning point in Mi'kmaq culture in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Hundreds of Mi'kmaq gathered in Flat Bay, in western Newfoundland, in July 2006 for the first powwow held outside of Conne River in generations. For many it was an emotional and powerful experience. Photos courtesy of Linda Wells.
