Join us in celebrating the Native American Student Association (NASA) 24th annual “Learning to Walk Together” traditional pow wow! The pow wow begins with the grand entry and the flag song followed by veterans’ honor song. All Veterans – male/female, Native/non-Native are honored this way. The Emcee will provide information on the dances including: male and female traditional dances, jingle dress and grass dance, and male and female fancy dance. Social dances, such as the inter-tribal, round dance and two-step, are also featured and the audience is invited to participate. Artisan and vendor booths provide a variety of craft items, reference materials, and food. A pow wow can truly be a cultural learning experience! Join us at Northern Michigan University’s Vandament Arena for the pow wow, and the Jacobetti Complex later for a traditional feast to continue the celebration.
Note: Please remember that in honor of our elders, we allow them to eat before the rest of us. In this case, we also allow drummers and dancers the same honor. If you see someone who fits this category, please open space for them.
All are welcome!
