Students from BSU's Council of Indian Students prepared frybread tacos and wild rice soup at a fundraiser Tuesday for the council's annual powwow, which is the largest student-led event at the university every year. Last year's powwow drew hundreds of dancers and 21 drums to the school's fieldhouse, and events like the one on Tuesday—and donations from nearby tribes and businesses—pay for about 40 percent of its cost. Council members said each fundraiser brings in approximately $1,000.
