2019 UTA Benefit Powwow
Be here for the 24th Annual UTA Benefit Powwow on March 2, 2019 in the UC Bluebonnet Ballroom in Arlington, Texas. The Native American Student Association (NASA) and the UT Arlington Honors College are pleased to present their Annual UTA Benefit Powwow with a goal of raising scholarship money to benefit Native students.
UTA Benefit Powwow
Many of the 120 Native American tribal affiliations in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area will be represented at Annual UTA Benefit Powwow. The powwow offers a tribute and ceremonial prayer for Native warriors and all military service people. Other highlights include traditional singing, and dancers in full regalia. The dance regalia is considered a unique expression of spirit, often comprised of heirlooms and other articles handmade by family and friends handed down from generation to generation.
Some people come to the UT-Arlington Powwow to hear songs that are very sacred to them; others come to dance and enjoy a purely social gathering. The Powwow presents an opportunity to learn about Native American culture and to patronize vendors who will offer up delectables such as fry bread or Indian tacos. Many powwow visitors will know very little about this powwow world, which is why the emcee explains Powwow terms.
About the UTA Native American Student Association (NASA)
Co-founded by Dr. Joseph Bohanon (Choctaw), NASA is the longest active higher education Native student organization in Texas, and the Annual UTA Benefit Powwow has grown yearly since its charter. The 2016 UT-Arlington Powwow raised over $3,800 in scholarship funds, most of which wouldn’t have been possible without the generous donations from vendors, offering up their pieces as raffle items, along with contributions from the community.
