Move your body during Indigenous History Month with KFPL
June is Indigenous History Month, and Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is celebrating with Amanda Fox’s Powwow Workout.
A powwow is a gathering to celebrate First Nations culture through dance, songs, food and crafts, and is open to all. According to a release from the library, this 30-minute high-intensity workout will incorporate powwow dance steps from different styles of powwow dance and the sounds of contemporary and traditional powwow music into a simple, follow-along workout.
“Don’t miss the chance to participate in this unforgettable experience!” the library said, noting that two identical 30-minute sessions are being offered at the library’s Central Branch on Saturday, Jun. 3, 2023, from 1 to 1:45 p.m. and 3 to 3:45 p.m. Please register for only one session at the links below:

Fox brings her Ojibwe heritage to life through beadwork, sewing, dance and drumming, KFPL said. As a jingle dress dancer, singer, drummer and powwow workout instructor, her passion for her culture shines through in every move she makes.
“At KFPL, we believe in the power of community and connection,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the rich cultural traditions of Indigenous Peoples, get active and learn something new. We know that attendees will leave feeling energized and inspired!”
