Powwows are social gatherings of hundreds of Native Americans who follow dances started centuries ago by their ancestors and that continually evolve to include contemporary aspects. These events of feasting, drum music and dance are attended by Natives and non-Natives, all of whom join in the dancing and take advantage of the opportunity to see old friends and teach the traditional ways to a younger generation.
During this event, we celebrate the accomplishments of NC State’s multicultural graduates by giving them a small token to commemorate their transition from student to Alumni in the presence of their friends, family, and members of the Wolf Pack community. We hope that by highlighting students’ accomplishments during their time at NC State, we can create a more personal and culturally relevant graduation experience.
