Please join the Native American and Indigenous Student Alliance (NAISA) on Saturday, May 7th, 2022 at the First Annual Traditional Spring Pow Wow: Honoring the Matriarchy.

This event is open to all and is a space for Native and non-Native people to gather together to dance, eat, socialize, share art, be in community, and much more. A Pow Wow is a family-friendly, intergenerational cultural celebration held by many Native and Indigenous communities. This is a space free of any and all drugs and alcohol, and we are asking attendees to familiarize themselves with pow wow etiquette—NAISA will be providing educational resources for those planning to attend.

We encourage mask wearing to help protect our communities, and our most vulnerable.

We look forward to being in community with you at our 1st Annual Spring Pow Wow!

CNAIR is a proud co-sponsor for this event!
