Powwow Information

The 2022 UIC Powwow will be held Saturday, September 17th outdoors!

After a hiatus due to Covid, the UIC Powwow returns to campus on September 17th, Saturday, outdoors on campus in conjunction with UIC Open House 2022!

The annual Native American Support Program Powwow is a community and cultural event that recognizes and highlights the indigenous presence on the UIC campus. The event brings together Native craft vendors, Native food, dancing, and drumming as a way to bring awareness to the Native community at UIC. The event is meant to be a showcase of the strong relationships with other Native organizations in Chicago and invites the general UIC community to learn more about indigenous people and culture.
