Opaskwayak Cree Nations Flag Raising Ceremony

Earlier this week Opaskwayak Cree Nation had a flag raising ceremony at their Indian Days Park. OCN Chief Christian Sinclair says it was a historic day and a day of pride for the community as the flag identified Opaskwayak Cree Nations sovereignty.


Around 400 people attended the ceremony where they had drumming, prayers, and the singing of the honor song by the little Mihikanak Drum group and the Canadian anthem sung in Cree by the Joe A Ross School Choir.


The flag has OCN’s logo on it that features many symbols that represent different elements of Cree Culture.
