Powwow season has special kickoff
The Sweetgrass Society at Montana State University-Northern is kicking off Montana's powwow season on Saturday, in conjunction with a new event.
The annual powwow, with registration for drums and dancers at 11 a.m. and grand entries at noon and 6 p.m., was timed to run with the first Montana All-Star Tribal Challenge basketball tournament at the university.
"We want to do this with the powwow every year," said Stacey Gonsalez, Sweetgrass Society adviser and Northern's multicultural coordinator. "Hopefully it will bring more people to town and boost the local economy."
