|Native American Culture Days (NACD)
Native American Culture Days (NACD) and Powwow
Celebrate the traditions and contributions of Indigenous cultures.
Create a space on campus for Native music and dance, Native voices, Native art and Native culture to be vibrantly visible.
Provide opportunities for the campus and local Native communities to build connections and address social, cultural, historical and political issues facing the Native American community.
Educate the campus and larger community about the diverse cultural elements that comprise and contribute to our society.
Promote cross-cultural communication and alliances, offer opportunities for service to the community and provide experiences in leadership development for UCD students.
Present speakers, workshops, seminars, art exhibits, performing artists, films, receptions, cultural ceremonies and youth outreach conferences.
Present Powwow, the single largest gathering of Native people on the Davis campus that attracts over 1,000 dancers, vendors and spectators for contests and celebration.
NACD and Powwow are programs of the Cross Cultural Center funded by ASUCD, Office of Campus Community Relations, Student Affairs and partnerships with campus and community organizations. The Planning Committee is composed of student leaders of NASU, AIRR (American Indian Recruitment and Retention) and the CCC and is facilitated by NACD and Powwow Student Coordinators
NACD and Powwow are possible thanks to collaborative partnerships with faculty, staff, departments, alumni, student organizations and off-campus groups that enhance and support the overall program and build positive connections with a wide range of individuals and groups.
