Ermineskin Powwow



You ever have that proud Brother moment? I did last night at the Ermineskin Powwow when my twin brother Dougie Rain was dancing in a traditional men's special. Rain is one of the hosts of Heartbeat of Nations on CFWE-FM

Rain was one of the six finalists in that special when drum Northern Cree faked him out and he was bucked off, stopping too soon.

He immediately stopped dancing and walked off, acknowledging that the drum had won that night. He stayed until Nathan Chasing Horse was selected the winner and congratulated the remaining dancers.

Yes, I was a proud brother last night.

Winner of that men's special Nathan Chasing Horse.
