KOB in New Mexico has reported that the University of New Mexico has cancelled the contract. The University will no longer host the Pow Wow in the arena known as The Pit or the WisePies Arena.
According to the University:
“The decision is both financial and operational. At a time when the University is facing tough budgetary constraints, hosting the PowWow had become prohibitively costly to our athletic department, as well as risk services, police and security, and other university operations.”
A spokesman for the University stated that Expo NM is interested in hosting the event.
Gathering of Nations committee, according to KOB, remained committed to the Pow Wow remaining in New Mexico.
UPDATE – 5/5/2016
