The Grand Mid-Summer Pow-Wow is New York City's oldest and largest Native American celebration. This year's event was held over three consecutive days. During the three days, there were dance contests, unique performances, and traditional arts and crafts exhibition.

The Grand Mid-Summer Pow-Wow was a great opportunity for CCIP exchange visitors who are from the Asia-Pacific region to experience Native American culture. CCIP students engaged in the festival, with feelings of celebration.

The interns were enthusiastic about their experience at the Pow-Wow because they were exposed to many unique customs that they had not previously been acquainted with.

"I didn't know much about the history of the Native Americans," said one student, "so coming to the Pow-Wow was very eye-opening. I learned so much."

Another student added, "All the dancing and the shows were amazing to see. Doing stuff like this is really what makes CCIP so unique."


The Cross Cultural Internship Program (CCIP) is a cultural exchange internship program that takes place in New York City every year. It is dedicated to fostering mutually beneficial East-West cultural exchange, targeting exchange visitors from Asia and the Pacific region.

CCIP provides exchange visitors and host organizations the opportunity to exchange insights, ideas, and experiences. Through the program, participants acquire practical knowledge and cultural experiences, and host organizations connect with the international community and stay abreast of trends in the global marketplace.

CCIP is organized by FUSIA Communications, one of the approximately 98 J-1 intern designated visa sponsors in the nation. FUSIA is responsible for the selection of interns as well as supporting and monitoring theĀ¬m during the program.

CCIP is a structured, full-placement internship program. Since 2008, CCIP has provided internship opportunities to over 850 exchange visitors. In 2015, 71 students were selected out of 1050 applicants. They were matched to 20-plus host organizations of diverse disciplines including government district offices, law firms, publishing houses, media firms, advertising agencies, real estate agencies, and more.
