The First Nations Educational & Cultural Center will present the 11th annual IU Traditional Powwow 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at Wilkinson Hall. The event is open to the public and free.
The schedule for the 12-hour event features performances from Native American dancers, Ballet Folklorico IUB, Indy Hula and hoop dancer Angus Bush. A variety of food and drink will also be available for attendees.
The powwow is a traditional gathering that is rooted in the Native American societies of the Southern and Northern Plains of North America, according to the FNECC website. Powwows are held throughout the U.S. and Canada as a way for Native Americans from many different tribal backgrounds to connect and celebrate their history and culture.
