DU Powwow

Powwow Flyer 2015

Sunday, 3 May 2015

Free to attend on the DU Driscoll (campus) Green

The DU Native Student Alliance invites you to its 5th annual New Beginnings Spring Powwow! The event has become a campus-wide event with support from the Chancellor's office, DU Programming Board and the Center for Multicultural Excellence.

In Native American communities, a powwow is a social gathering, a time when dance and music honor the resilient cultural history of Native American people and tradition. A powwow encompasses a variety of educational experiences including history and art. This cultural celebration will enable our university and community to foster fellowship with the city of Denver and Native Peoples of the North and Southwest. For this reason, we wish to share this stunning and unique culture experience with our peers and community.

The vibrant display of American Indian culture is offered free and open to the University of Denver community and the city of Denver. The beauty of a powwow resides in its overreaching unity and sanctity. People of all tribal affiliations and races can participate in a powwow. Also during the powwow a brief history and information of each performance will be presented.
