Loitered Lens : Presence Autochtone

To increase the public profile of Présence Autochtone, the festival takes over La Place des Festivals, in the heart of Montreal’s entertainment district, with a huge suspended teepee as the centrepiece.

Displays of crafts and other free cultural events happen here, including a continuous open-fire barbecue. The main attraction is the free concerts in the evenings.

Photographer Chris Patmore caught some of the sights and spectacle for Loitered Lens, Richard Des Jardins, Trancestral and Esther Parnell among them.:
