Spirit Power on Display 

On June 3, EWU’s Native American Student Association teamed up with the American Indian Studies program to host the annual Spirit of the Eagle Powwow at Reese Court. During the day-long event, tribal citizens old and young came together for friendly dancing, singing and drumming competitions that evinced the joyful richness of our region’s Native heritage. “The NASA students and the powwow committee bring good spirit power to all of the planning and organizing that is necessary for an event this big,” says Erin Ross, Eastern’s director of tribal relations. “It’s the largest, student hosted event each year for EWU, and it brings our tribal nations together in a spirit of fun and healing.”
