Annual Lane Powwow

Native American child in traditional clothingOur annual Powwow is one of the largest in the Northwest, drawing participants and spectators from as far away as South Dakota.This has facilitated an increase in Native American students attending Lane. In 1991, Lane identified 50 Native American students attending class. Today, there are more then 650 self-identified Native American students attending Lane. This increase in Native American students has helped to produce community support for the longhouse project.

    The Lane Community College Native American Student Association invites the public to its annual powwow on Saturday, April 5, in the gymnasium, building 5. Grand entries are at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

    In the past, the powwow was held the first Saturday in December but this year had to be rescheduled for the first time in its 20-year history due to severe winter weather and road conditions.

    Lane's powwow brings participants and spectators from around the Northwest and beyond. The event has facilitated an increase in Native American students attending Lane. In 1991, Lane identified 50 Native American students attending class; today, about 650 Lane students self-identify as Native American.

    This powwow is a free event. All drums and dancers are welcome. No alcohol or drugs are permitted.
