Honouring Our Students Pow Wow 2018

Okay so I’m aware that this has absolutely nothing to do with jazz but it’s going to be tons of fun so I would love to see your beautiful faces there! Also I’m volunteering so if you see me please stop and say hi!

Also: “This year’s event will feature a *much* larger, state-of-the-art venue, over 50+ food, craft, and information vendors, giveaways, and some of the best drum groups and dancers from across Turtle Island!

Everyone is welcome.”
