The 28th Annual Traditional Graduation Pow Wow will take place on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at the Investors Group Athletic Centre. Please join us in celebrating the achievements of the 2017 University of Manitoba’s Indigenous graduates.

A Pow Wow is a celebration; it is a cultural event that brings people and nations together; it is an opportunity to hear traditional drum songs and see all different types of dancing. If you are adventurous, you might even want to join in for the community dances! The day-long celebration includes an opening Pipe Ceremony, presentations to the graduates, and a community Feast in the afternoon. All activities are free and everyone is welcome!
