Our Spring Pow Wow was a huge success!

Mesa, AZ – On Saturday, April 4, 2015, Mesa Community College’s Intertribal Student Organization (ISO) presented its 2015 Spring Pow Wow, the first at MCC since the late 1990s.

After months of planning and fundraising, the day culminated in a successful event that brought many people together to mingle and watch some very talented Native American dancers compete against one another on a beautiful March day.
