Join the Native American Student Advocacy Institute to network, learn, and collaborate so that we can all help Native American students find success today and in the future. Below is the schedule. 

Sunday, April 27, 2014, 12 - 5 PM

The Nizhoni Days Powwow is hosted every spring by KIVA club and other Native American Student organizations at the University of New Mexico (UNM). KIVA Club’s mission is to encourage student and community involvement with Native American issues and events on the UNM campus and in the surrounding communities. KIVA Club’s major trademark is Nizhoni Days, a week of celebration and sharing of American Indian culture with UNM students, staff, faculty, and the general public.


The Powwow is outdoors rain or shine, so please come prepared with sunscreen, hats, comfortable clothing/shoes, and umbrellas. We also suggest you bring lawn chairs or a blanket, a canopy for shade, and cash for the many vendors and booths!
