33rd Annual Pow Wow at ASU

The Arizona State University Pow Wow Committee is a student organization whose primary purpose is to coordinate and host an annual Spring Pow Wow. This event is a culmination of Native beliefs and traditions that inspire, communicate, and support the Native American culture. As part of the diversity at Arizona State University, Native Americans are beginning to represent an increasing percentage of the student population. It is with pride that we seek enrichment, not only academically, but also culturally, by maintaining and sharing our heritage and traditions.
