University of Iowa Powwow
The University of Iowa Powwow is a wonderful opportunity to introduce the Iowa City area community to a contemporary-style powwow with all the song and dance, the diversity of tribal nations, and the arts and crafts vendors that accompany such events across Indian Country. Spectators will see dancers representing different tribal nations in full regalia. Authentic Native arts and crafts may be purchased directly from noted jewelers and artisans.
Powwows are social gatherings of hundreds of American Indians who follow dances started centuries ago by their ancestors and that continually evolve to include contemporary elements. Usually held between March and November, powwows are attended by Natives and non-Natives, all of whom join in the dancing and take advantage of the opportunity to see old friends and learn about American Indian culture.
