Stanford hosts 24th annual Powwow May 12-14
STANFORD -- The Stanford American Indian Organization will host the 24th annual Stanford Powwow Friday through Sunday, May 12-14, on the intramural fields along El Camino Real, adjacent to the stadium. In conjunction with the Powwow, the second annual 5K/1-mile Fun Run will be held at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, May 14. All ages are welcome, and registration is on-site at the Powwow grounds.
The theme of this year's Powwow is "Honoring Indian Youth: The Future of America." In the past some 35,000 people have attended the three-day event, making it the largest of its kind on the West Coast. Camping is available for a $5 fee, but there is no charge for admission or parking.
Featured events at the Powwow will include both competitive and non-competitive dances. Ninety arts and crafts booths and 30 food booths will offer sand paintings, weavings, silver and turquoise jewelry, pottery, quill work, beadwork, drums and Indian tacos.
The Stanford Powwow is an annual attraction for Native Americans and non-Indians, and is one of the largest student-run events in the country.
