July 15, Attending A Powwow

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

Native American powwows are synonymous with colorful regalia and impressive dances, a time to celebrate history, honor ancestors and affirm community connections. A traditional powwow is much more than just a dance. These events combine spirituality and community, and while many are open to the public, they serve as a way to renew Native American cultures and preserve their rich heritage.

Shereen Siewert welcomes Odawa White, Dean of Continuous Improvement at Lac Courte Orielles Ojibwe College in Hayward, for a discussion on understanding the history and importance of powwows, and what to know before you go.
