A campus wide event held annually to promote and share the artistic wealth, diversity and versatility of Native American and Indigenous peoples across the nation. The event brings together the UIC community and Native American/Indigenous families to celebrate the vibrant cultures of Native America. This long-standing tradition has been an integral part of the UIC cultural experience for well over two decades. It features various workshops, talks and a key-note address by guest speakers along with many indigenous cultural activities. The highlight of the event is when we all come together and have a traditional Powwow. The Powwow features Native Drum Groups and Dancers, with many wearing traditional regalia. There are also traditional foods and arts and crafts by Native artists.
UIC with the NASP and NASO host a Student Conference with workshops and powwow during the month of November. Student conference is scheduled for Thursday, November 12 and the Traditional powwow is to be held on Friday, November 20.
