Sweetgrass Society holds fundraiser for powwow


March 19, 2019

Montana State University-Northern’s Sweetgrass Society is holding a fundraiser Thursday at Pizza Hut.

The money raised will go toward their upcoming Sweetgrass Society Powwow, which will happen April 12-13 at Northern’s Armory Gymnasium.

“The Sweetgrass Society is an American Indian student organization at MSU-Northern,”

Sweetgrass Society Advisor Erica McKeon-Hanson said. “The Sweetgrass Society seeks to promote an understanding of American Indian cultural traditions and values, while offering support and mentoring to students at MSU-Northern. The organization hosts cultural events and activities, as well as the annual powwow, throughout the academic year at MSU-Northern.”

Thursday, when anyone paying for a dine-in or carry-out order at Pizza Hut says they are donating to Sweetgrass Society, 20 percent of the purchase price will go to the fundraiser.
