This will be our 139th Birthday for the school.  Chemawa is the oldest boarding school the school is for most Native American students.  They must be enrolled in a Federally Recognized Tribe to attend.

At the Pow wow there are arts and crafts which vendors make their selves.  We would like more food vendors to come to the event. Righ now the Concessions and Fry bread stand are operated and ran by the students that are in the Pow-wow Club. 

The Pow wow Club consists of 25 students they are the ones that organize this event.

Come to our pow wow and enjoy yourself.

Our school is drug, alcohol, and tobacco free.  No vaping on campus.

All visitors 16 or older are required to show photo Id upon entering Campus.
