Final Event Cancellation Announcement

The LCC Native American Student Association (NASA) regrets to inform our community that our Annual Pow Wow, scheduled for April 4th is cancelled and will NOT be rescheduled this year.

The decision to cancel our annual event was made in line with current Lane Community College, local and national guidance concerning the COVID-19 outbreak. Our decision also was made to protect our community, and especially our elders.

Our vendor coordinator will personally contact all vendors regarding refunds. The Pow Wow Committee and the college will reevaluate the possibility of hosting a 2021 Annual Pow Wow at a later date. Please check back for updates.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lori Tapahonso, tapahonsol@lanecc.edu, 541-463-5238.

Our annual Pow Wow is one of the largest in the Northwest, drawing participants and spectators from around the Northwest and beyond. This has facilitated an increase in Native American students attending LCC. In 1991, LCC identified 50 Native American students attending class. Today, there are more then 650 self-identified Native American students attending LCC. This increase in Native American students has helped to produce community support for the longhouse project.
