Powwow for Hope, the nation’s only known cancer awareness powwow, is a community fundraising event that honors loved ones who have battled cancer or are fighting cancer and provides an opportunity to learn more about cancer prevention and resources. Proceeds benefit the American Indian Cancer Foundation’s work to eliminate cancer burdens on American Indian families throughout Indian country.
Your help is needed to address the cancer burdens faced by many American Indian families throughout Indian Country. As we approach our seventh annual event, check back to learn how you can organize or join a team. Teams will raise funds in many different ways before, during and after Powwow for Hope. All money raised will be used to provide cancer education and supportive services for American Indians.
On behalf of all of us at the American Indian Cancer Foundation (AICAF), we are so thankful for everyone who donated and came out to the 6th Annual Powwow for Hope: Dancing for Life, Love & Hope! With dedicated volunteers, supportive sponsors, donors and a record 40 fundraising teams, the event was a resounding success as we raised over $110,000 for the first time ever! We are grateful for their contributions, as well as the dancers and drum groups who honored cancer survivors with their dancing and healing songs.
