Join the hundreds of people in attendance to get the Bay Area’s powwow season got off to an energetic start at San Francisco State’s SKINS (Student Kouncil of Intertribal Nations). Everyone is welcome at SFSU SKINS Pow Wow, and Saturday’s attendees will include SFSU students, who get extra credit in Native American studies for attending, alumnae members, and visitors from around the area.
This is a non-alcohol, drug free, no-cannabis event. Sorry, no dogs are allowed. Thank you, we are looking forward to seeing YOU there. Come celebrate with us. Grand Entry is at NOON.
No matter; the hundreds of people in attendance had countless diversions. There were children to stop running across the center arena (a major powwow no no), food to buy or unpack, old friends to hug and shake hands with. People had come from Stockton, Vallejo, Sacramento, farther. No surprise; Native people often drive long distances to see one another.
