Powwow kicks off at college

Okanagan College will be celebrating Indigenous culture at its Kelowna campus Thursday, during the 11th annual Youth Exhibition Powwow.

The “high energy, family-friendly” event begins at 9 a.m. and runs through 4 p.m. Participants will be attending from across the B.C. Interior.

“One of our key directions at Okanagan College is working with and learning from the Indigenous community,” said College President Jim Hamilton.

“The Powwow supports Indigenization at the College and continues to be one of the most meaningful and well-attended events we have to celebrate Indigenous knowledge and culture on campus.”

Okanagan College has one of the fastest growing rates of Indigenous student attendance of any post-secondary institution in B.C., with more than 1,800 Indigenous students in 2018.
