In the late 1990’s, Ryerson became the first university in Toronto to host a Traditional Pow Wow, organized by the newly created Ryerson Aboriginal Student Services. Four annual Pow Wows included dancing, drumming, artwork, and an estimated 1200 attendees. Twenty years later on September 21, 2018, the Ryerson Pow Wow relaunched with the help of the Saagajiwe research center and the Provost’s Office.
Pow Wow 2020
We are so excited to have the Ryerson Pow Wow back for 2020! Due to COVID-19, we have moved the Pow Wow to an online, digital event, external link. Our goal is to provide a space for the community to gather and share safely.
This will look like a full Education Week with different videos, live workshops and panels everyday. Our Pow Wow will be a live-streamed video which will feature Dancers, Drum Groups, two incredible M.C.’s and more. We have also launched an online market, external link so you can still shop your favourite vendors on Pow Wow day!
