OAMI partners with the Native American Student Association (NASA) to host the annual Dance for Mother Earth Powwow.

This event provides an opportunity for you and the U-M community to experience and honor Native American heritage and history.

The U-M Annual Dance for Mother Earth Powwow is one of the largest student-run Powwows in the country, featuring more than 1,000 of North America’s greatest Native American singers, dancers, and artists.

We welcome the entire community to take part in celebrating this rich culture! This is your opportunity to witness Native dance and drum contests, shop with Native artists and craftspeople, and dance alongside Natives of all ages and nations.

If public health and University protocols allow, we plan on hosting an in-person powwow during the spring of 2022.

Date for 2022: TBD

Time: Starts at 10:30 am, schedule varies throughout each day.

Location: Skyline High School


The Annual Dance for Mother Earth Powwow is always looking for volunteers to coordinate and help out on the day of the celebration. Contact Hector Galvan- hgalvan@umich.edu or call 734-936-1055 if you are interested in being a part of our planning committee, or for more information.
