Farmington Area Public Schools has partnered with other south metro school districts to bring you the South of the River Pow-Pow. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. It will take place on Saturday, May 20th, at Burnsville High School (600 E Hwy 13, Burnsville, MN 55337). Doors open at 11 a.m. followed by the first grand entry at 1 p.m., a free feast at 5 p.m., and second grand entry at 7 p.m. The pow-wow will conclude at 9 p.m. You can also follow the Powwow on Twitter at @SOTRpowwow.

Many Farmington students have heard Numen Smith, American Indian Education Liaison, talk about American Indian history and culture, including pow-wows, as he has given presentations around the district. Now our students and their families have an opportunity to join their neighbors in this community building event celebrating both diversity and unity. Be sure to mark your calendars!

This event is organized by the South of the River American Indian Home School Liaison Committee, which includes District 191, Lakeville, Shakopee, Prior Lake-Savage, and Farmington, along with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.
