National Powwow XVI
Many powwows are widely known and attended by dancers and visitors from throughout the United States. One such event is the National Powwow, (NPW), which is being held in Danville, IN this year from July 3-6.
Running every third year since 1969 and organized by an all-volunteer committee, the mission of this historically long-running powwow is to respectfully share in the values of American Indian culture, while increasing awareness of American Indian traditions among the non-Native community.
NPW’s mission goes hand in hand with the public education efforts conducted by National Relief Charities – information we share to promote a more accurate history and modern-day portrayal of Native American peoples.
In keeping with this commitment, we are proud to be a premier sponsor of the National Powwow this year. A team from our AIEF program will be onsite during the four-day event to support the event, promote scholarships for Native American students and visit with many of our donors from the surrounding area. We invite all who attend to stop by our booth at Spot #40. For more information, please check out the powwow press release.
