Junior Hong Uyen Hua dances during a Garba event hosted by the Indian Students Association.

“I have a dress from every culture … Indian, Chinese, Colombian,” she said. The event took place Friday evening at the Field House.

Garba is the Indian form of a dance originally from the Gujarat region. It is traditionally performed during the nine-day Hindu festival, Navaratri. Women and men wear colorful costumes when they perform the dances.

The Indian Students Association will host numerous events this week to celebrate the festival.
