MESA, Arizona – March 23, 2016 – The public is invited to participate in the 2016 MCC Powwow featuring American Indian dancers, drummers, art and cuisine. The Powwow will be held at MCC (1833 W. Southern Ave., Mesa), near the tennis courts, on Saturday, April 2 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Sponsored by the MCC Inter-Tribal Student Organization the Powwow will showcase indigenous talent and provide a source of funding for student scholarships.

“Our American Indian Institute is looking forward to sharing our culture and rich heritage with members of the community,” said Yvonne Dinehdeal, director, MCC American Indian Institute. “The festivities will provide a link to the past that helps maintain Native Heritage and the proceeds will serve as an investment in the future through scholarships for MCC’s American Indian students.”
