Welcome to the 2021 KU FNSA Powwow & Indigenous Cultures Festival! After a hiatus last year due to COVID, we’re back with a variety of virtual events. All our events are free and open to the public.

In addition to the powwow, join us for a virtual 5K to raise money for FNSA’s student support fund, Sisters Rising documentary screening and Q&A panel, Indigenous cooking videos, and children’s storytelling sessions. You can find more about these events by clicking the links at the top of this page.

Unfortunately, we will not be hosting vendors this year.

Questions? We’d love to hear from you! Please contact kupowwowfestival@gmail.com.
