NMU Virtual Powwow March 26

Northern Michigan University's Native American Student Association (NASA) and the Center for Native American Studies will host "Powwow 102: Learning to Walk Together (While Apart)." The event will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 26 on Zoom and on NASA's Facebook Live @nmunasa. This event is free and open to the public, but donations are encouraged. 

Powwow 102 is an educational breakdown of a traditional Native American powwow, including demonstrations by dancers and talks by traditional advisers. Framed much like a powwow's grand entry, participants will first hear sounds of the traditional drum for an opening song, followed by talks on a range of topics, from the importance of regalia and beadwork to providing tips on proper etiquette when attending a powwow. 

There will be an extended period of time dedicated to audience discussion, only available to Zoom participants. Zoom participants will also be entered into a raffle for the chance to win e-gift cards to local businesses. 

Registration is not required but participants can learn more and register for the event at tinyurl.com/nasapowwow102.
