KSAL StaffMarch 30, 2016

An annual spring powwow at the University of Kansas is expanding into a daylong educational festival.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the 2016 KU Powwow and Indigenous Dance and Culture Festival will be Saturday at the Lied Center. The festival will feature workshops, food, a matinee and an evening powwow. Admission is free.

Each event will kick off with a grand entry featuring dancers in full regalia, followed by competitive dances in various categories for men, women and children. First Nations Student Association staff adviser Melissa Peterson says competitive dancers from different tribes will come from all across the country.

First Nations Student Association president Landri James says she hopes the event will help share Indian culture with the community.
