22nd Annual Seven Arrows Powwow
April 4–5, Student Union Simplot Ballroom
Grand entry at noon and 7 p.m. on Saturday; noon on Sunday

Showcasing the customs of Native Americans in full regalia, the competition draws performers from all over the U.S. and Canada. “The Powwow weekend is filled with dancers and drummers,” said Ro Parker, the director of Multicultural Student Services.  “If folks want an opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of the first people, this is a great opportunity.”

Powwow also features demonstrations and storytelling, and vendors will be selling traditional crafts and original artwork. General admission is $6; children under 12 are $4; students with a Boise State ID are free, and non-perishable food donations will be taken at the door for the Native American Council of Boise. Discounted parking in the Lincoln Garage will be $1 daily.

Cohosted by Red River Powwow Association and Boise State’s student organization Intertribal Native Council. For more information call Multicultural Student Services at (208) 426-5950.
