Penn State To Host 18th Annual Traditional American Indian Powwow

Penn State will host its 18th annual Traditional American Indian Powwow from Saturday, February 24, to Sunday, February 25, at the C3 Sports Complex.

The event will feature dancers, singers, vendors, and authentic food to celebrate and uplift community.

Historically used by indigenous nations to celebrate culture, tradition, and ancestors, the contemporary powwow has similar themes and motives. The celebration is seen as a family reunion and a connection between indigenous and non-indigenous cultures.

The Grand Entry of Dancers will begin at noon on Saturday and Sunday with a procession and prayer. Throughout the two-day event, visitors can watch various performers, purchase goods from indigenous vendors, and try traditional food.

The C3 Sports Complex is located in State College at 200 Ellis Place. Doors are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, and admission is free and open to the public.

More information including powwow etiquette can be found on the Penn State Powwow website or through the Powwow Coordinator and Penn State professor John Sanchez at [email protected].
