Bluestone named head dancer at Fargo Powwow

Bluestone named head dancer at Fargo Powwow
North Dakota State University students Thomas Bluestone and Kelsey Peltier have been dancing at powwows since they were old enough to walk.
Bluestone, member of Three Affiliated Tribes, and Peltier, member of the Turtle Mountain Tribe, will be head dancers for the first time at the 23rd Annual Woodlands and High Plains Traditional Powwow scheduled for Saturday, March 24, in the Bison Sports Arena at NDSU.
Bluestone, a junior majoring in criminal justice from New Town and Peltier, a sophomore majoring psychology from Dunseith, describe a powwow as a celebration and an opportunity to learn about Native American culture and history.
As head dancers, Bluestone will lead the men, and Peltier will lead the women in the grand entry and in the dances. There will be three dance categories for men, and three parallel categories for women. Each dance tells a story.
