Native American students made history on November 11, 2022, hosting the first-ever PowWow on UGA grounds since the school's charter in 1785.
The Native American Student Association (NASA) is the smallest and youngest student organization at UGA, yet their event played host to an audience of more than 100 people. The PowWow was originally scheduled to be held on Reed Field and had to be moved to Tate Theater due to rain, a move that didn't affect audience enthusiasm in the least.
"NASA was well organized for the PowWow and feast," said LeAnne Howe, Eidson Distinguished Professor and Director of the Institute of Native American Studies. Native students fed all the dancers and families after the PowWow at Yellow House on Hull Street," she said.
