The UNH Native American Cultural Association (NACA) will be hosting a Native American Powwow on the campus of the University of New Hampshire on Saturday, November 2rd , 2013 at the Memorial Union Building (MUB), Granite State Room. This event is free and the public is welcome. NACA is a member group of the University of New Hampshire’s Diversity Support Coalition. Their mission is to help raise awareness, advance respect, and further the understanding of the cultures, traditions, and teachings of the Native community.
Powwow time is the Native American people’s way of meeting together, to join in dancing, singing, and visiting, renewing old friendships and making new ones. It is to renew thought of the old ways and preserve a rich heritage. This is also a time where people who are unfamiliar with the culture can learn and ask questions. There will be native flute music, along with 15 Native Arts & Craft Vendors, along with a food vendor. Gates open at 10 am, Grand Entry will be at noon, and closing ceremonies at 5 pm. This event is funded by the Student Activity Fund Council (SAFC).
