The powwow, part of Indian Awareness Week at BHSU, was started 25 years ago by Dr. Ronnie Theisz, humanities professor at BHSU who will retire this May.
“It has been a distinct privilege and honor to have worked and learned from Dr. Theisz. He will be missed,” said Dr. John Glover, director for the Center for American Indian Studies at BHSU.
The student selected theme, “Healthy Choices Empower Nations” recognized the challenges and opportunities facing Native Americans today.
According to Glover this was the largest Indian Awareness Week yet with over 20 speakers and events prior to the wacipi.
