On Nov. 30, CSUN’s American Indian Student Association and the American Indian Studies Program hosted the 36th annual Powwow, an annual celebration of American Indian dance, music, culture and traditions.

There are more than 200,000 American Indians in Los Angeles County. Powwows celebrate different cultures, music, stories and traditions. Participants included representatives of the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians, who are the native people of the San Fernando Valley.
