Honouring Our Students Pow Wow 2018

The Indigenous Studies Students' Union welcomes you to our 2nd Annual Honouring Our Students Pow Wow at the University of Toronto on Sunday, March 11th, 2018. We are excited to announce this year's traditional pow wow will be hosted at the bigger and brighter Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport (Bloor/Devonshire in Toronto)!

We invite you to join us as we celebrate all the Indigenous communities that call Toronto home, with special guests from across Turtle Island. It's a day to celebrate our academic journeys, Indigenous communities, and cultures. 

This year's event will feature a *much* larger, state-of-the-art venue, over 50+ food, craft, and information vendors, giveaways, and some of the best drum groups and dancers from across Turtle Island!
