FORT WILLIAM FIRST NATION – The Pow Wow Grounds have been desecrated. A NetNewsLedger reader shares that today she was out with her eleven year old daughter  and her one year old grandson to see the damages and impact of the flooding. Several caucasian males in trucks were driving around the Pow Wow grounds at Mount Mackay where the annual Pow Wow is held on the July Long Weekend.

The vandals were captured on camera damaging the grounds.

Our source shares that the vandals, once they saw her, realized they might be in trouble. Our reader shares that the trucks surrounded her, and one of the caucasian males in the truck got out of his vehicle and seemed willing to attack her and her family.

Fortunately, she reports the driver thought better of that. 

APS Police were able to apprehend one of the drivers, as he attempted to leave the area.

The other two vehicles remain at large, they reportedly tried leaving the Pow Wow Grounds by another route.
