As the 26th annual Celebrating Life Pow Wow took place on campus during the weekend, students, faculty and community members had the chance to do more than spectate.More than entertainment, the annual celebration is an opportunity for the Central Michigan University community to learn about the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribal culture they are surrounded by. It is an opportunity that should not be missed. If we are going to wear, display and cheer the Chippewa name at sporting events, we have a duty to understand and respect the people and culture it represents.The Tribe, whose reservation was established in 1855, is an integral part of the university and surrounding community. CMU partners with the Tribe on several initiatives, from summer sports camps run by athletes and a mentoring program for tribal youth to education and training for all Athletics Department staff and student athletes.The Pow wow is organized by CMU's student-run Pow Wow Committee, and serves to further strengthen the relationship between the Tribe and university, bringing members and students together under one roof for celebration. The largest strength of the Pow wow lies in its ability to educate non-Native people and create deeper understanding between the Tribe and CMU community.All too often, non-Native people are presented with biased or negative images of Native Americans through modern media and sports culture.
