2019 FNUniv Spring Powwow
Join us at the 41st Annual FNUniv Spring Powwow on April 20-21, 2019 at Brandt Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan. The powwow will draw thousands of spectators and hundreds of dancers and singers. Some participants will travel to Regina from places such as New Mexico and Florida to take part in the dance or drum contests. If you are a competition dancer, be sure to be on time for the Grand Entries and the extra points because $27,000 in prize money is going to the top four placers in each category. Prize money for the FNUniv Spring Powwow drum contest is $35,000 for the top eight places!
FNUniv Spring Powwow
Our FNUniv Spring Powwow is a ceremony and an opportunity to share our First Nations culture with the rest of the world. It is also a celebration of spring to recognize this joyous time of year. We are thankful for having seen another winter pass and look forward to the rebirth of our Mother Earth.
