BEMIDJI -- Brendan Strong stood outside BSU's John Glas Fieldhouse on Saturday, quietly singing an Ojibwe song into the recorder on his phone.

Coming from Red Lake, he was at the University to drum in the 47th Annual Powwow, organized by the Council of Indian Students. While taking a few moments away from the powwow outside the gym, he recorded his composition to help his fellow drummers learn the words and rhythm.
