Winnipeg Police Service Media Release
For Immediate Release

21st ANNUAL Winnipeg Police Service NORTH END SPRING FEAST

On April 7th, 2017, at 12:00 noon, members of the Winnipeg Police Service District #3 Community Support Unit will be hosting the 21st Annual Spring Feast at the Indian & Metis Friendship Centre located at 45 Robinson Street.

In traditional Aboriginal communities, there were a select group of individuals known as the Peacekeepers or Warriors of the tribe.  They were from the Bear Clan and assumed the responsibility to protect the community from harm.  Another important role was to provide food to ensure no one within the community was hungry.

As police officers, we are honorary members of the Bear Clan and are expected to perform a wide range of duties and assume many different roles including being a Peacekeeper.

The Winnipeg Police Service North End Spring Feast, under the guidance of an Aboriginal Elder, is reminiscent of the tradition whereby the hunters in the community prepared and held a Feast to honour the Community.

This has proven to be a tremendous success, serving upwards of 700 people at past events, and has enhanced the relationship between the members of our Police Service and the Aboriginal Community. 

This year with the assistance of RB Russell School culinary staff/students, police members from the Winnipeg Police Service,  RCMP,  CP, CN and Treaty Three Police Departments/Services, are honoured to represent the Bear Clan at this Traditional Feast. 

Children from an area school will be present and assisting in our celebration by performing traditional dance.

Members of the media are welcome to attend.  There will be time for members of the public to interact with Police Officers after the event.
