GVSU Spring Powwow – 2012

ALLENDALE, MICHIGAN — Inside powwows are in full swing, as spring weather brings through in many parts of Indian country.

One powwow that moved its powwow outside for two years, is moving back inside this year. The Grand Valley State University’s Native American Student Association decided the possibility of stormy weather is just too risky in Michigan. Grand Valley State University main campus is located west of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Two years ago, the weather cooperated it was a very spring-like day for the powwow with temperatures in the low 70s. However last year, the powwow  met with inclement weather which cut down the attendance.

This year the 16th Annual GVSU Spring Powwow will be in the Grand Valley State University’s Fieldhouse, which is located on the Allendale campus. This year’s theme is “Celebrating all walks of life.”

“This powwow is a wonderful opportunity for grand valley students and the native community to come together and promote cultural learning and awareness. It will be a great time for everyone!” comments Nikole LeCompte, president of the GVSU’s Native American Student Association.

Powwow hours are from 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. – EDT.
