Edmonds Community College is proud to host this year's 32nd Annual Powwow on May 6-7, 2017. The powwow brings together students, families, and communities to celebrate American Indian singing, drumming, dancing, and arts and crafts.

The college appreciates the support of dancers and singers and will provide honoraria to dancers in full regalia and drum groups who register by 15 minutes prior to each session and participate in the grand entry and exhibition in each session. Honoraria will be paid during each session after each exhibition by category. A special for Golden Age Women will be held during the first session on Saturday, a potato dance during the second session, and a hand drum contest on Sunday.

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.

Students and employees of Edmonds CC participate in a variety of environmental, service-learning, and cultural activities throughout the year in support of local tribes and tribal members. During Summer 2017 students can earn college credit while supporting canoe families on Tribal Canoe Journey's Paddle to We Wai Kai (Cape Mudge) and We Wai Kum (Campbell River) in British Columbia. More information and an application is available here.
