CHADRON – The Chadron State College Powwow will take place Saturday in the Student Center Ballroom from 1 to 9 p.m.
Following the Grand Entry, events will include dance contests, dances with small cash prizes, as well as intertribal dances where everyone is welcome to participate, according to Dr. David Nesheim, adviser for the CSC Native American Club.

“Whether you choose to sit back and enjoy the virtuoso performances of the drum groups and dancers, or you decide to get out into the dance circle, you will almost surely have a good time at the powwow. If you can’t stay for the whole time, please try attend at some point during the day,” Nesheim said.
