We are excited to announce that this year's powwow with be hosted in collaboration with Eastern Michigan University's Native American Student Organization. The Crisler Arena was not available for this year's powwow, so our committee looked to our neighboring Native American Student Organization to try something new. We wanted to reach out and strengthen community ties through this collaboration. EMU has not hosted a powwow in over ten years, and we hope to be of assistance to them and provide a model in which they can start their own powwow again.
