Rate This Event

 

All are welcome at the 16th Annual Willamette University Social Pow Wow on March 10, 2018 at the Willamette University Cone Field House in Salem, Oregon. The Social Pow wow is a time to renew thoughts of the old ways and to preserve a rich heritage. Members of the community came together at the Willamette University Social Pow Wow through various types of dance, song, food and Native arts and crafts. A number of local tribes and businesses also donated items for a raffle to benefit the Native and Indigenous Student Union (NISU).

Willamette University Social Pow Wow

This annual event, held on the second Saturday in March, represents Native American Indians from western Tribal Nations in a unique atmosphere of expression through their arts, crafts, traditional foods, dances and songs. If you are new to pow wows, pay particular attention to the Emcee, as he will explain the meanings and activities taking place on the arena floor.
