2019 ENAEP Veterans Powwow
All are welcome at the 13th Annual ENAEP Veterans Powwow on October 26, 2019 at the Juanita High School in Kirkland, Washington. Each October, students from the Eastside Native American Education Program (ENAEP) host their annual ENAEP Veterans Powwow as an expression of cultural pride that places so much importance on its veterans. The student sponsored event helps keep that cultural knowledge alive in their younger generation. The Powwow is run and directed 100% by the student leaders, and is a testament to their strong planning, organization, and communication skills, and is put on by the students of Title VI Program in 3 school districts: Bellevue, Northshore, & Lake Washington.

There will be a Dinner for Veterans at 3:30 p.m. The Veteran’s Dinner and Honoring @ 4:00 p.m. is free for all veterans, and guests. As an opening ceremony, a flag will be raised outside Juanita High School in honor a selected veteran. This ceremony will be followed by a dinner and program sponsored by the Eastside Native American Education Program (ENAEP) volunteers and served by the students. ENAEP students present every veteran with a booklet of personal thank you messages. During the Veteran’s Dinner students recite their poems, letters and other expressions of thanks.
