Pow Wow showcases dancing, celebrates culture

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.
