Edmonds Community College’s Native American Student Association hosts the 28th annual powwow, “Teachings of the Wolves,” May 3-5. The powwow brings together students, families, and communities to celebrate American Indian singing, drumming, dancing, and arts and crafts in Seaview Gym.
Dance and drum ceremonies start at 7 p.m., Friday; 1 and 7 p.m., Saturday; and 1 p.m., Sunday. During intermissions, 5-7 p.m., Saturday, enjoy Native storytelling. This event is free and open to the public. This is a contest powwow; all dancers and drums welcome.
Powwows are social gatherings — open to all people — celebrating American Indian tribes’ traditions, styles of dance, songs, families, and friendships. Dancers and drummers come to the college’s powwow from tribes throughout the Northwest and United States including locally, the Muckleshoot, Lummi, and Tulalip Tribes.
This year, musician and educator Arlie Neskahi, of the Dine' (Navajo) Nation of New Mexico, is the master of ceremonies. He is well-known for his performance, composition, and knowledge of traditional music. The college also welcomes arena director, Robert Charles; host drum, 206; and head woman dancer Tilda Walsey. There will also be a men’s traditional special, sponsored by JC Allen Tacket, the head man dancer.
