There was a lot of celebrating on Saturday at Augsburg College in Minneapolis.

The school's sixth Traditional Powwow gathering was about thanking a local Sioux tribe for contributing to endowed scholarships for American Indian students to attend Augsburg.

Jennifer Simon is the Director for American Indian Student Services on campus. She said it was also a big day for those already on campus.

"This is an opportunity for them to share a part of their culture with the campus community and welcome our community to the campus," Simon said.
