MSU Celebrates Native Culture

Posted: Updated:

The Minot State Dome is filled with music, dancing and vibrant, traditional Native American dress.

This weekend is the 25th annual Native American Spring Honor Dance and Powwow Celebration.

Tribal representatives from as far away as Arizona have traveled to the student run event.

Internationally renowned Yellow Bird Indian Dancers will entertain all weekend along with For Peck Sioux as host drum group.

Sheldon Standish, the youngest president the Native American Cultural Awareness Club has ever seen, says putting the event together was a challenge well worth it.

(Sheldon Stanish, President, Native American Cultural Awareness Club) "I get to see other tribes that are out there. I get to see their dance styles get to see how they... get to see how they dance and how they show off to us. They get to show what their culture is like. They get to get their stuff from back home and bring it here so that we can show it off to everyone."

The celebration will continue tomorrow evening.
