About the event
Dress Code: Modest dress code is required at all Pow Wows. Nice jeans (no holes) and a jacket (if it looks like it will be chilly) are recommended. Please refer to the Dress Code details in your email communication!
“Pow Wow Etiquette” information has been provided by our Student Ambassador Jackson Burghart and his mom, Stephanie, they are members of the Kiowa tribe. Jackson serves on the Indigenous Voices Youth Council of the Native American Student Services (NASS) which is the group organizing the Pow Wow.
Please take a few minutes to review, as it provides great insight into the traditions and expectations for guests attending any Pow Wow.
We've learned in previous years, that there are always a few special recognition dances honoring specific individuals. During these dances, it is customary to make a donation honoring the individual by placing a dollar 'in the hat' as they dance by you. This is not mandatory or required, but it provides a fun way to be involved and participate - so bring some dollar bills if you would like! They will also have vendors selling handmade items if you are interested in shopping.
Please park in the school parking lot and enter the main entrance of the school. Head to the gym, which is straight down the hall. The cafeteria is just outside the gym and there will be vendors there if you're interested in shopping. Please meet me outside the gym.
Looking forward to seeing you Saturday!
Please don't hesitate to email, text, or call if you have questions.
