Poster promoting the UNCG Spring Powwow on Saturday, April 13 at the EUC Lawn.

UNCG’s Native American Student Association (NASA) will be holding UNCG’s annual Powwow in conjunction with Science Everywhere on April 13, 2024. The event features Native dancers, drummers, and vendors. The UNCG Powwow is organized by UNCG students, who work all year to organize community dancers, artists, and leaders. This event is an important opportunity for the UNCG community to support and celebrate our talented Native students.

The event is free to attend. NASA will canned food donations for Spartan Open Pantry at this event. Bid on handcrafted items and purchase from Native American vendors.

The Spring Powwow will be held on the Elliott University Center Lawn.

Activities begin at 10 a.m. with the grand entry at noon:
MC: Sandon Jacobs
Head Man: Nakoma Maiden
Head Lady: Nina Martinez
Northern Drum: Red Clay
Southern Drum: Southern Eagle
Arena Director: Brad Locklear

This year, the UNCG Powwow will feature specials bringing awareness to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) and Every Child Matters movements. MMIWG (marked by the red handprint) acknowledges the continued absence of missing or murdered Native women and girls from the public consciousness and advocates for the end of violence against Native women and girls. Every Child Matters calls for continued advocacy for survivors of the Indian boarding schools and to bring home the Native children left behind. Every Child Matters is marked by the color orange and works to “honor the innocent lives lost.”
