Edmonds Community College is proud to host this year's 29th Annual Powwow: "Honoring Our Veterans: Past, Present, and Future" on May 2-4, 2014. The powwow brings together students, families, and communities to celebrate American Indian singing, drumming, dancing, and arts and crafts.

The college is committed to providing culturally enriching educational opportunities throughout the event through traditional storytellers, elders performances, this year's grand opening for the Cultural Kitchen, and seeks to provide healthy and sustainable options of traditional foods.  In addition to hosting the annual powwow, students and employees participate in a variety of environmental, service-learning, and cultural activities throughout the year that supports local tribes and tribal members.

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 is a contest powwow; all dancers and drums welcome.
