Pow-Wow of Native American culture

Friday at 10:30 a.m. in the Lory Student Center Main Ballroom, traditional Native American culture will be celebrated through singing, dancing and food during the annual CSU Pow-Wow.

To start the morning off, the seeped-in-tradition “Gourd Dance” –– which is believed to have originated with the Kiowa tribe –– will be performed in conjunction with a Native American dance competition.

The Pow-Wow will continue with the “Grand Entry” –– a traditional Native American parade consisting of ceremonial dancers performing with tribal chiefs and headmen.

A “Pow-Wow Feed” will close the evening, and it will consist of a buffet of traditional Native American food.

Sponsored by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, the CSU Pow-Wow is free and open to the public.

Wayans brothers to make CSU laugh

This Sunday at 8 p.m in Moby Arena, Marlon and Shawn Wayans of “White Chicks” fame will take the stage for a night of brotherly stand-up comedy.

They’ve been featured on Nickelodeon, and they also helped to write and produce the “Scary Movie” series.

Sunday’s show is put on by ASAP in partnership with Air Force Reserve. It is open to CSU students, faculty and staff, and today is the last to pick up free tickets and the Lory Student Center Box Office.

The Society will begin the evening by revealing the starry origins of many of the characters’ names, and it will conclude with looking for said stars with professional telescopes.
