The month of May brings two of my favorite events, both celebrating the diversity of the Stanford community.
The Stanford American Indian Organization and the Stanford Powwow Planning Committee host the 46th Annual Stanford Powwow, May 12-14th, in the Eucalyptus Grove, at Galvez and Campus Drives. And, the annual Stanford Multicultural Springfest will be held on Thursday, May 25th, from 11 am until 1 pm, on Manzanita Field. Come out and enjoy the music and food!
