8th Annual Powwow
The Indiana University annual Traditional Powwow attracts hundreds of visitors each year and boasts a line-up of nationally known dancers and singers, along with traditional foods, crafts, and dance clothing. Performers of all ages participate, carrying on the traditions of their people as they represent them through their feathers and beadwork, their dance clothes, the songs they sing, and the styles in which they dance. The powwow is an important time when generations come together to share in dance and song, and to celebrate the diversity of contemporary Native American tribal identity.
In addition to the social dancing at IU’s Traditional Powwow, vendors offer handcrafted items such as silver and turquoise jewelry, blankets, artwork, beaded purses, and other accessories. Visitors can also expect to enjoy a variety of food.
