Powwows are social gatherings of Indigenous People in North America; it is where Native people come together to enjoy themselves through song, dance, and food while renewing kinship relationships, meeting new people and passing on the traditions to the next generation.

It is the cultural enrichment component of the annual Native Studies Symposium.

The UMass Powwow is open to the public. In fact, the general public is strongly encouraged to come and learn and participate appropriately.
