Volunteers sought for 11th annual traditional American Indian powwow

Penn State and the State College Area School District are hosting the 11th annual "New Faces of an Ancient People" traditional American Indian powwow on Saturday, April 5 and Sunday, April 6 at the Mount Nittany Middle School. Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend.

The traditional American Indian powwow is a contemporary social gathering and celebration of community featuring American Indian drum music and songs, Native American dance and Native American foods, as well as American Indian vendors showing and selling their arts and crafts. This powwow is recognized as one of the finest family friendly events available in the State College area and has earned a national reputation as one of the finest in the country.

The powwow committee is looking for volunteers to assist with the logistical aspects of the powwow. Volunteers are needed for powwow set up, work in the American Indian kitchen, errands/supplies/facilities, powwow take-down, and various other duties. Volunteers will be asked to sign up for 4-hour shifts.

Please consider taking advantage of this unique opportunity to volunteer to share your time with American Indian cultures.

A powwow volunteer orientation meeting will be held on Saturday, March 1 at 10 a.m. in 104 Rackley Building on the University Park campus. If you are interested in volunteering for the powwow this year, email volunteer coordinator Bruce Teeple at mongopawn44@hotmail.com. Visit www.powwow.psu.edu for more information.
