University of Nevada, Reno Powwow

We are excited to host our Annual University of Nevada, Reno Powwow! The purpose of the Powwow is to celebrate the new school year, bring students and families to campus in a traditional and cultural way, and also to provide the vision of a plan for graduation.  On average we have about 600 people gather for this event. This event will draw students, alumni, and participants from Nevada, Arizona, California, New Mexico and other states. Collaborators who have contributed to this great event include UNR’s The Center: Every Student, Every StoryNative American Alumni Chapter (NAAC)Native American Student Organization (NASO),  Residential Life, Office of New Student Initiatives,  Office of Diversity Initiatives, and many community supporters.

By Hosting such a historic event we will continue to capture the community spirit of our land grant university while also honoring important traditions of the Indigenous people of our state. 

The event is free and open to the public. Spectators are encouraged to bring their own chairs as seating is limited.
