Typically held in spring, powwows were often celebrations of new life and a time for families to hold naming and honor ceremonies. With singing, dancing and friendship, powwows are still an important part of First Nations culture and are held for a variety of reasons.

The Intertribal Student Council Powwow will pay special tribute to First Nations veterans. This free event is being held at the Kress Events Center. Doors open at 10 a.m. with Grand Entries at 1 and 7 p.m. A free feast will be served at 5 p.m. at the Richard Mauthe Center.

For information, contact Clinton Isham at ishacd09@uwgb.edu or (920) 412-2404, or Alan Caldwell at ajcaldwell48@gmail.com or (715) 851-7508.
