35th Annual POWWOW

Powwow-3

Saturday, May 1 - Saturday, May 8 2021

Fully digital!

This event is always FREE and open to the public

In the times of COVID, Edmonds College was proud to host our 35th Annual Powwow fully virtually. The powwow brings together students, families, and communities to celebrate American Indian singing, drumming, dancing, and arts and crafts.

Powwows are social gatherings - open to all people - celebrating American Indian tribes' traditions, styles of dance, songs, families, and friendships. Dancers and drummers come to the college's powwow from tribes throughout the Northwest and United States.

Students and employees of Edmonds College participated in a variety of environmental, service-learning, and cultural activities throughout the year in support of local tribes and tribal members. 

All information for how to get involved in our upcoming virtual offerings will be hosted on our main page. Please check back regularly for updates!
