This exhibit features various aspects of the Native North American powwow. More specifically, it features the history and culture behind Ann Arbor’s "Dance for Mother Earth Powwow," which is approaching its much-anticipated 50th celebration.

The Dance for Mother Earth Powwow is a multi-decade, intertribal celebration of Indigenous cultures. It grew from its early beginnings as a small gathering in a field just outside of Ann Arbor into one of the largest student-led powwows in North America. The event attracts crowds of thousands — dancers, singers, artists, tribal members from across the country, and non-Indigenous members of the community.

Stop by to learn more about The Dance for Mother Earth Powwow, modern Indigenous culture, and resources to connect to today on campus.

This exhibition was curated by Michigan Library Scholar interns, Allison Jiang and Andrea Medina. The Michigan Library Scholars internship program provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to research and develop a capstone project under the guidance of experienced library professionals at one of the largest academic research libraries in the world.
