The California Sate University, Northridge American Indian Studies program and American Indian Student Association hosted the 35th annual Powwow – a celebration of American Indian dance and music — on Nov. 24.

Dozens of dancers, including those from the Fernandeño Tataviam (the native people of the San Fernando Valley), wore special regalia of feathers, beadwork and tribal designs.

The Powwow featured vendors selling items from souvenirs to fine arts, a raffle, traditional American Indian foods and a children’s activity table featuring history and botany of native plants in California.
