Scenes from Bemidji State Council of Indian Students' 51st powwow

BEMIDJI - Hundreds of people once again flocked to the BSU Gymnasium for the Council of Indian Students' 51st powwow event on Saturday.

"Each year, the Council of Indian Students proudly host a campus- and community-wide powwow to celebrate their unique history, traditions and culture," a release said. "This is an opportunity for everyone to come together and experience the beauty of Anishinaabe heritage."

The event featured food, dancers, drum groups and two grand entry ceremonies.

This year's powwow marked the second year the event was fully held without COVID restrictions. The event wasn't held in 2020 or 2021 and was scaled back to a round dance in 2022. Last year, the powwow celebrated its 50th year.
