Inter-Tribal Student Association 42nd Annual Powwow @ University of Utah Olpin Student Union Ballroom

Inter-Tribal Student Association 42nd Annual Powwow @ University of Utah Olpin Student Union Ballroom

The Inter-Tribal Student Association hosts its 42nd traditional powwow on Saturday, April 19 at the U’s Olpin Student Union. This year’s theme is “Sustaining Our Culture.”

The powwow is an excellent opportunity for communities to come together and join in dance and song.

“This is a long and proud tradition at the U,” says Octavio Villalpando, associate vice president for Equity & Diversity. “It is a wonderful way for the U to support American Indian students and community, honor their contributions and help others learn about their history and culture.”

Day’s Events:

Powwow Etiquette

1. Always stand respectfully during special songs. These include the Grand Entry, flag songs, veteran’s songs or any other song the MC designates. During these songs, men should remove their hats.

2. Pay extra attention to the MC for various announcements about the event and type of dances.

3. Ask permission before taking photos of dancers in regalia. If the photo is for publication or commercial use, this should be explained before the photo is taken.

4. The correct term for a dancer’s outfit is regalia, not costume. Never touch a dancer’s regalia. Many of the ornaments have religious meaning and are cherished family heirlooms.

5. If you see a lost or dropped feather, do NOT pick it up. Notify the nearest staff member, veteran, Head Man Dancer or Arena Director immediately.

6. Pointing with the fingers is considered poor manners by some tribes. If you must point, use your head and nod in the direction you wish to indicate.

7. Feel free to join in the inter-tribal dances by invitation of the MC.

8. Do not ever cross the arena floor! Do not go into drum circles. Stay on the perimeter. If a drum group is singing or about to sing, do not approach the drum.

9. Last of all, powwows are meant to be social events. Make a new friend, eat some food, visit the vendors… have a great time!

If you have any questions about any of the above etiquette or would like to know more, please ask an ITSA member. Also, most dancers, singers, elders and staff are happy to help.

Tumbleweeds Best of Fest: Felix  @ Jim Santy Auditorium

Directed by Roberta Durrant
Rated Not Rated, 97 min.
Free Screening

Traveling Tumbleweeds presented in partnership with the Utah Film Center

In this uplifting film from South Africa, 14-year-old Felix Xaba must overcome obstacles at home and school in order to fulfill his dreams. Felix is a talented pennywhistle player who wants to be a jazz saxophonist like his late father, but his mother forbids it, worried it will lead Felix down the wrong path. The right path emerges when Felix is accepted on scholarship to an elite private school. However, because bullies begin picking on him, school is difficult for Felix. Felix sees the school’s jazz concert as his opportunity to prove himself. Since the school isn’t looking for a pennywhistle player, but a saxophonist, Felix enlists new friends and his father’s old bandmates, and sets out on a quest to learn how to play the saxophone and let his musical talents shine.
