ASU Pow Wow
April 12-14, 2019 Sun Devil Stadium
American Indian dancers and singing groups from across the United States and Canada will be featured at this social gathering that reinforces the common bond and spirituality existing between individuals from many North American nations through singing and dancing. The cultural diffusion which takes place at the ASU Pow Wows helps bridge existing gaps in any misunderstanding of tradition and respect. The Pow Wow at Arizona State University is a culmination of American Indian beliefs and traditions that inspire, communicate and support American Indian culture. American Indians represent an increasing percentage of the student population at ASU and with pride seek academic and cultural enrichment by maintaining and sharing heritage and traditions with the community.
Five age groups, consisting of senior men and women, adult men and women, teen boys and girls, junior boys and girls, and tiny tot boys and girls, will all be dancing and competing in different dance categories. The ASU Pow Wow will feature various American Indian Arts and Crafts vendors from throughout the United States and Canada. This series of annual pow wows presented by the ASU Pow Wow Committee is specifically designed to preserve the Inter-tribal cultural heritage of the American Indian students at ASU and to enrich and demonstrate the cultural diversity of the ASU community and surrounding population.
