What is a pow wow?
Pow Wows are gatherings that Native American people use as a place to meet, dance, sing and otherwise renew and strengthen our rich culture. These gatherings are held year-round and many Native people travel great distances to attend them. The Ann Arbor Powwow is one of the largest university-run pow wows in the country, with more than 1,000 of North America's greatest singers, dancers, artists and craftspeople.
Come for a couple of hours, for the whole day, or for both days! And bring cash to shop from over 40 Native vendors!
Volunteers are needed! Gain free admission with a volunteer shift of just 2hrs! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Event is open to the public. All are welcome!!
The Ann Arbor Powwow is hosted by the UM Native American Student Association (NASA).
