Dancers to return to Quad for 42nd powwow

By From page A3 | April 15, 2014

The 42nd annual UC Davis Powwow will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday on the Quad.

The student-organized event is free and open to the public. The grand entry will take place at noon.

The powwow annually provides a showcase of Native American traditions as both a celebration and an educational opportunity for the community. The largest Native American event on campus, it attracts about 1,000 dancers, vendors and spectators.

The powwow could be canceled in the event of rain, but none is currently forecast.

The event is alcohol-, drug- and smoke-free. No camping or dogs will be allowed.

The powwow is a program of the Cross Cultural Center, funded by the Associated Students of UC Davis, Office of Campus Community Relations, Student Affairs and partnerships with campus and community organizations.

It caps a full week of events on campus during Native American Culture Days. For a calendar of events, see http://ccc.ucdavis.edu.
