PHOTOS and VIDEO: 52nd annual Time Out Wacipi Powwow

One of the longest-running cultural events at the University, the Time Out Wacipi Powwow has been hosted by UND since the 1970s 

A powwow is considered a celebration of life. It is called Wacipi (wah-chee-pee) in the Lakota/Dakota language and Ni-mi-win in Anishinabe (Chippewa/Ojibwa) language. It is a time when people of all ages can gather together to sing, dance, renew old friendships, make new friends and share the beauty of life.

And with that in mind, UND hosted the 52nd Time Out Wacipi Powwow at the Hyslop Center on April 19 and 20.

Below are a series of photos taken of the event, and we also call to your attention the video above, which was captured by UND videographers at the 52nd annual Time Out Wacipi Powwow. Visit UND’s YouTube page to see hundreds of other videos about all aspects of campus life.
