About Native American Pow Wows

Native American Pow Wow's are held for many purposes; they celebrate the new beginning of life, to honor warriors, ceremonies, and achievements. Pow Wow's provide a sense of family, community, pride and tradition through dance and music. Dancers come from many tribal nations and states from across the country to partake in Pow Wow events.

This year’s Pow Wow includes singing, competition dancing, youth activities, and the NASA Native food booth where attendees can buy frybread and other authentic food items. The event is free and open to the public, allowing accessibility for families and students to enjoy the experience of Native American Pow Wow culture.

Native American Student Association

The Native American Student Association (NASA) at Weber State University is a student run club that organizes activities and events that honor the beauty of Native American cultures. The NASA aims to provide quality opportunities through academic and extracurricular experiences that encourage Native student engagement within the university and community.

The WSU Indigenous Voices Pow-Wow offers a cultural platform for WSU Native American Student Association (NASA) members to showcase their leadership in this student led event. NASA leaders serve as role models for Native youth attending the Pow Wow, their interactions create a sense of belonging and is essential for encouraging Native youth to aspire to attend higher education institutions.  

The NASA hosts this event to create lasting relationships between the University, surrounding Native Communities, and members from Ogden City and beyond who partake in the festivities. We believe in Weber State University’s core values of learning through personalized experience and shared inquiry, engagement in the community, access and opportunity for all, respect for people and ideas, and nurturing the potential within every individual and have actively worked to exemplify and engage with these principles through this public campus and community event.
