12:00pm - 9:00pm
Motor Products Sports Centre, Strathmore

This regional, high-energy event on March 18-19 will showcase vibrant culture, song, dance, traditional craft vendors, authentic cuisine, storytelling, and demonstrations


The Town of Strathmore has officially announced its partnership with Siksika Nation to cohost what is being dubbed the Lead By Example Powwow.

The event is described by the Town as a cross-cultural community celebration and full contest powwow in honour of the late Kakato’si Kristian Ayoungman. 

The 2023 Lead by Example Powwow is an important event for southern Alberta. On March 17, 2019 Kristian Kakato’si Ayoungman was murdered on a highway near Strathmore, Alberta. Kakato’si was an elite young hockey player and champion dancer, and was an inspiring leader to many other youths. His mother knew that the healing over her son’s death could also heal racial injustice in her communities.

For four years Melodie Ayoungman-Hunt has worked with the Town of Strathmore and Siksika Nation to deepen relationships, build partnerships, and inspire people through Kakato’si’s memory.

The event, scheduled for March 18-19, will be hosted at the Strathmore Motor Products Sports Centre.
