BILLINGS - After a long winter and a change in weather, it's time for pow-wow season.
It's when Native American tribes from all across Montana and nearby states meet to celebrate their culture at MSU-Billings Alterowitz Gym.
MSU-B is hosting the first college pow-wow of the year.
The 46th annual event draws Native American dancers from Montana, the Dakotas, Colorado and even Canada.
This year's theme is, "Celebrating Native Women: Continuing A Tradition of Excellence."
Crow Tribal Chair Darrin Old Coyote served as the emcee.
MSU-B Chancellor Rolf Groseth and is wife Jaynee enjoyed their last pow-wow before Dr. Groseth retires.
The festivities end at midnight, and start up again at noon Saturday.
