Admission is $5 general, $3 seniors, and free for children younger than 10; tickets are available at the door. Grand entries will be at noon and 7 p.m. March 22 and noon March 23.

The Intertribal Native Council is raffling off a print by acclaimed photographer and Boise State professor Larry McNeil. The print is worth $2,500, and tickets are $20 each. McNeil has been recognized by the National Geographic Society for his work, which is also part of the State Department’s Art in Embassies program. To purchase a ticket, call INC president Hailey Wilson at (208) 791-5686. Proceeds will go to the INC.

This year’s emcee is Gary Watson of Blackfoot, and the arena director is Leander “Little Bear” Watson of Fort Hall. Dancers and drummers from all over the Intermountain West will compete during the Pow Wow for thousands of dollars in cash prizes.

The INC is a student organization made up of students and non-students, both native and non-native. For more information about the club or the Pow Wow, e-mail hlw22@hotmail.com or www.inertribalnativecouncil.zoomshare.com.

Boise State University is emerging as a metropolitan research university of distinction. This transformation is being powered by the university’s first comprehensive campaign to support students, faculty, strategic initiatives, research and infrastructure. That’s why the campaign to raise $175 million in private support is called Destination Distinction.
