. The purpose of the Algonquin Nation gathering was to promote  revitalization of the Algonquin culture, promote re-unification of the Algonquin Nation and provide an opportunity for Algonquin citizens to socialize. There were workshops, presentations and teaching on the Algonquin History and Culture. There was a Harvesting tent set up to display the maps and furs and traps used for the fur trading industry. Chief Patrick Glassford and others looked after the tent and also were in charge of barbecuing a moose which was harvested for the occasion.
