Singing and drumming swirled through the Olpin Union ballroom as the University of Utah’s Inter-Tribal Student Association welcomed the American Indian community and friends to the U’s 45th annual powwow in April. Dedicated this year to the Northern Ute Tribe, the powwow also highlighted growing intertribal unity across the country. The celebration opened with the customary Grand Entry, including paying respects to the American Indian flag and U.S., state, and tribal flags. This traditional gathering of tribal members honors the cultural and religious practices of the Native American community through language, song, and dance.
