The Baylor University Native American Student Association (NASA) will host its seventh annual scholarship benefit powwow -- "Spirit of the Buffalo" -- from 4-11 p.m. Saturday, April 1, in the Ferrell Special Events Center.

The traditional gourd dance will begin at 5 p.m. followed by the grand entry at 7 p.m. Arts and crafts, jewelry and clothing from throughout the state will be on display and available for purchase. Proceeds will benefit the Helen Harris-NASA Scholarship fund which recruits Native Americans to Baylor.

The celebration will honor those who have made significant contributions to NASA and helped to educate the community about Native Americans. The honorees are Bill Nidiffer, the organization's advisor, and the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Club.

Also Native American actor, Eugene Blackbear Sr., will speak at 5 p.m. Friday in the Kayser Auditorium in the Hankamer School of Business. His talk is in conjunction with the showing of his film, The Last of the Dogmen.

All events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Laray Guerrero at 710-2966 or the department of student activities at 710-2371.
