Dance for Mother Earth
Art Brandt credits NASA with working through the issues that led to the split. "This was a long process on their part, and they understand how important it is," he says. "Bringing the powwow back to campus might inspire the new Native students to get involved--very few are, and some don't even know the university has a powwow."
Brandt says that he would love to see the Dance for Mother Earth celebrate its fiftieth anniversary "with a bang, with fireworks and all, like the Fourth of July." But that's still ten years away. This year, everyone is glad just to have the powwow back in Ann Arbor.
