It doesn’t just build community among
local Native Americans, but the Portland
community as a whole. That is what
the ninth annual Portland Community
College Traditional Winter Powwow
(Wacipi) will attempt to accomplish this
January at PCC.
The Winter Powwow, which attracts
more than 1,000 visitors each year, runs
from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday,
Jan. 19, in the HT Building at the P.C.C.
Sylvania Campus, 12000 S.W. 49th Ave.
The event is free and open to the public.
Parking also is free.
“It’s a really important community
event,” said student coordinator Crystal
Rogers, who is a member of the Tlingit
Tribe in Northwest Alaska. “I think it is
a great opportunity for Native Americans
and the community to enjoy a cultural
event. It shows what it means to be Na-
tive American because each group repre-
sented will have their own heritage and
backgrounds on display. It’s an opportu-
nity for the community to come and enjoy
a rich cultural event.”
The main staples of the event include
grand entries at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., a col-
lege fair from noon to 4 p.m. and com-
munity dinner at 5:30 p.m. The powwow
will feature master of ceremonies David
West (Potawatomi, Miami and Kickapoo
nations), arena director Ed Goodell (Con-
federated Tribes of Siletz).
Plus Northwest Indian Veterans As-
sociation Color Guard, Native American
merchandise vendors, and Native Ameri-
can food like fry bread and tacos. For
more information about the powwow, call
