2019 U of M Traditional Graduation Pow Wow
The 30th Annual U of M Traditional Graduation Pow Wow will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the Investors Group Athletic Centre in Winnepeg, Manitoba. Please join us in celebrating the achievements of the University of Manitoba’s Indigenous graduates. A Pow Wow is a celebration; it is a cultural event that brings people and nations together; it is an opportunity to hear traditional drum songs and see all different types of dancing. The U of M Traditional Graduation Pow Wow adds the element of University graduation to what is being celebrated.
