Members of the University of Kansas’ First Nations Student Association are planning their annual Powwow and Indigenous Cultures Festival, and organizers are asking for volunteers to help at the event.

FNSA members will be hosting their 34th annual Powwow and sixth annual Indigenous Cultures Festival next month. The all-day event is free to attend. The day of celebration will bring educational speakers, interactive activities, children’s activities, dancing, food and more.

According to a post on the event’s Facebook page, volunteers are needed for both indoor and outdoor tasks, including setup support, greeting and guiding people, and cleanup support. All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt, according to the post.

“It will be a great opportunity to be a part of the team that makes this community event memorable and exciting for all,” the post stated.

FNSA’s Powwow and Indigenous Cultures Festival is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 8 at the Lied Center, 1600 Stewart Drive in Lawrence.
