Hello, my name is Kathalina Hoffman from the Haida Indian tribe of Alaska.

 Coming to the University of Washington has been my first real exposure to my culture. I grew up what is known as an "Urban Indian" which means that because of our history I have been disconnected from my culture. This saddens me to say, however being a part of First Nations has helped me rekindle my cultural ties and allows me to express who I am in a safe environment.  This is my first year being a part of First Nations and I would like to do my duty here as an active member to help fund for our 46th Annual Spring Powwow. This is not only an experience for me to reconnect with my cultural roots, but also to share my a part of who I am with the community at large. 

I would be incredibly grateful to see as many people as we can there! If you can please help us fund so that we can throw a BIG powwow that would be great!!! Thanks!

Powwow Purpose

The purpose of the Annual FN@UW Spring Powwow is to preserve the customs and traditions of the University of Washington Native American community and to promote cultural education and diversity on campus. FN@UW believes in creating a safe space for community gathering and cultural celebration. Our student group hosts the largest student- run event on campus, attracting thousands of both Native and non-Native community members.

 

Student Life

FN@UW is ran by both undergraduate andgraduate students of Native and Non-Native descent. We hold weekly meetings for Native students to socialize, eat food, and plan events. FN@UW often partners up with other Native organizations on campus for field trips and cultural educational activities. Our goal is to create a comfortable space for students and staff to bond, and offer cultural activities.




Expenses

Operating the Annual Powwow requires expansive manpower to organize and over $60,000 in financial support. Your generous donation will be used for the purchase of honorariums for the head staff involved in the event, venue expenses, and ancillary expenses related to promotion or the event. We would greatly appreciate your support.
