Each year leading up to Native American Day the annual Black Hills Pow Wow takes place.
Native Americans from 28 U.S. states, Canada, and Mexico pack up after a weekend of competitive dancing, music, and tradition.
Organizers say overall the turnout was impressive, despite the destructive blizzard last weekend.
Hundreds of dancers and hundreds of native supporters from all over the country filled the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.
Dancers and organizers say staying true to tradition, keeps them coming back each year.
And this year, there were some very popular performers.
