Join us for the 42 annual Spring Powwow—everyone is welcome! As part of Indigenous Cultures Awareness Month, the annual powwow is a signature event at Northland College. Enjoy the popular powwow photo booth, as well as the beautiful works of regional artists. See the 2015 photos here. All events are free and open to the public. Grand entries at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Feast at 5 p.m.
The ICC, Native American Student Association and other organizers of the powwow have added several new features this year including the Pink Shawl Dance, a special dance aimed at honoring and healing those affected by cancer, the Switch Dance, to remember the high renown and honor historically given to gender-fluid Two-Spirit People, and at 1 p.m. President Michael Miller will present the Indigenous People’s Day Proclamation, joining about a dozen colleges across America in proclaiming the former Columbus Day, the second Monday in October, as Indigenous People’s Day
All ICC events are drug/alcohol free and open to the public free of charge.
