powwow NDSU was the host institution for the 27th Annual Woodlands and High Plains Traditional Powwow in April, in collaboration with Concordia College, M-State and Minnesota State University Moorhead. The theme this year was “Educate. Empower. Continue the Legacy!” More than 200 dancers and 1,500 spectators from the region, including visitors from tribes such as the Hidatsa, Lakota, Mandan, Arikara, Sac and Fox, and Chippewa Nations, attended. “A traditional powwow is a time to celebrate and renew friendships,” said Jered Pigeon, NDSU powwow committee chair. “In addition, this powwow celebrates the educational success of area American Indians in higher education and the sharing of tribal cultures.”
