The Teton Powwow is a collaboration between Central Wyoming College and Native American Jump Start. The Annual Teton Powwow was born out of a shared commitment to celebrate and honor the rich tapestry of Native American heritage while forging a pathway to a brighter future. Going beyond the traditional mission, this vibrant event stands as a symbol of unity, blending tradition with innovation. The powwow showcases the dynamic blend of long-standing traditions and modern education, embracing the culture of resilience and adaptation. Its goal is to foster a sense of cultural appreciation and unity among diverse communities.
Jackson Hole is ancestral land to many Native nations, including the Eastern Shoshone, Northern Arapaho, Nez Perce, Bannock, Shoshone-Bannock, and Crow, among others. As a testament to the enduring spirit of Indigenous resilience and the transformative power of education, the Teton Powwow serves as a reminder of the significance of these ancestral lands and their rightful stewards.
The Annual Teton Powwow embodies a harmonious fusion of tradition, history, environmental stewardship, and economic prosperity, nurturing the legacies of these diverse Indigenous communities. It opens doors to opportunities that bridge the past and the present while acknowledging the significance of these ancestral lands and their rightful stewards.
