VYPER's Monthly Cultural Powwow Nights

No matter what your background is, you are welcome to come and join in the good medicine and community that comes with our weekly cultural nights! This truly is an event where everyone is welcome to learn, to take risks, and to belong. We start the evening with a prayer, followed by a group meal sponsored by VYPER. The evening consists of games, contests, and dancing, and follows the general outline of a traditional powwow.
