The 2018 Gathering of our People

August 8 – 10, 2018

“Bringing them back home.”

The 2018 Gathering of our People was held from August 8th to 10th, 2018. Moose Factory is home to many talented musicians, many of them now living and performing abroad. For this year’s gathering, we decided to bring them back home.

The Gathering of our People is an annual event, typically held in the first week of August. It is a time to showcase and celebrate our Cree culture, and reconnect with our family, friends, and neighbours.
