Skagit Valley College (SVC) will host the annual SVC Powwow on Saturday, October 5, 2019 in the Dave DuVall Pavilion, located at the Mount Vernon Campus. The doors will open to the public at noon. The SVC Powwow will include drummers, dancers, and participants in regalia from across the United States and Canada. Admission and parking are free.
SVC has a long history of collaboration with its Native American neighbors, including hosting powwows on campus in previous years. This is a family-friendly, free event, and all are welcome. Come and join us for dancing, drums, food, and vendors selling Native arts and crafts. The event will also include a kids’ corner organized by SVC’s Early Childhood Education program.
Grand Entry will take place at 1pm and 7pm and will include grass dancers, fancy dancers, traditional dancers, and jingle dancers. There will be intertribal dances that are open to all. In addition, there will be “tiny tots” sessions for children birth to six years of age.
The SVC Powwow will include time to honor veterans from all walks of life and recognize their service and all Veterans are welcome to take part in the Grand Entry.
The SVC Powwow is about nurturing diversity and inclusion in our community, building relationships that honor the beauty of our differences, and celebrating all that brings us together for a common purpose.
