2015 Annual Winter Powwow

The annual Winter Powwow was held on January 24 at the HUB, hosted by the ASUW American Indian Student Commission. Featuring the Emmy-Award winning singers BlackLodge as host drum, the event drew over 700 Native American community members and allies from as far away as Vancouver, Canada, Montana, Idaho, Eastern Washington and Oregon.

This 26-plus year tradition saw the most drum groups to participate in 13 years, with 15 drum groups and their families contributing their voices and energy to inter-tribal and exhibition dancing of various traditional Native American dances. The registered student organization First Nations kept everyone amply fed with their Indian taco stand. Also in attendance were various vendors of Native American crafts, jewelry and countless Northwest-style 12th Man gear!
