Your code looks quite complicated (certainly more complicated than it
should be ... as a starting point, why not use a single Table instead of
that double Do with assignments?), and it's completely uncommented, so I
did not take the time to figure out what it does.
But since you are talking about powers of matrices ... would the
following help?
NestList[#.mat &, mat, 10]
Also take a look at Inner[], which is a generalization of matrix products.
