BEMIDJI - In celebration of 50 years of events, Bemidji State's Council of Indian Students hosted a round dance event on Saturday, April 9, in the BSU Gymnasium.

"We're here tonight celebrating 50 years of events as a Council of Indian Students," Asin explained, who has been council president since 2020. "Usually we have an annual powwow but this year, still coming out of COVID, we decided to do a round dance event instead just to pull it back a little so there are not quite so many people."

After being unable to hold an annual event the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, organizers were excited to be able to get back into the swing of things.
