MSUB Pow Wow This Weekend

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The annual MSU Billings Pow Wow is coming up this Friday.

This year's theme is "Celebrating Native American Women: Continuing a Tradition of Excellence." The Office of American Indian Outreach promoted the importance of women in their communities. Native American students say women make all the clothes and get children ready for pow wows and are essential to preserve their heritage.

 

"But all of the busy work, behind the scenes, like point systems, making sure things are running smoothly, the women generally are the ones who do that work," said Nona Main, MSUB Pow Wow head woman dancer.

"As long as we're able to keep helping with the pow wows, helping to put them on, then we'll be able to pass down traditions onto the next generation," said Kaja Anderson, Intertribal Indian Club administrative director.

The event takes pace at the Alterowitz Gym on campus. Grand entry begins Friday, April 4, at 6 PM and Saturday, April 5, at noon. Organizers say everyone is welcome to attend.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.
