SVC Powwow: Nurturing Diversity and Inclusion

Oct 8, 2019 | Skagit Valley College

On October 5, Skagit Valley College was proud to host the annual SVC Powwow at the Mount Vernon Campus. The Powwow included drummers, dancers, and participants in regalia from across the United States and Canada.

SVC has a long history of collaboration with its Native American neighbors, including hosting powwows on campus in previous years.

The SVC Powwow is about nurturing diversity and inclusion in our community, building relationships that honor the beauty of our differences, and celebrating all that brings us together for a common purpose.

Grand Entry took place at 1pm and 7pm and included grass dancers, fancy dancers, traditional dancers, and jingle dancers. There were intertribal dances that are open to all. In addition, there will be “tiny tots” sessions for children birth to six years of age.

The SVC Powwow also included time to honor veterans from all walks of life and recognize their service.
