Native drumming and singing welcomed visitors to the The 19th Annual Benefit Pow Wow at the Bluebonnet Ballroom.

Vendors were selling authentic clothing, books and CDs about Native American culture. With native dance competitions, a hand drumming competition and storytelling, the ballroom was alive with culture.

The smell of fry bread wafted through the room as people watched Native Americans proudly display their heritage.

The pow wow raised money for the Native American Student Association scholarship and brought in people from all over Texas and as far as Oklahoma. The event was held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m Saturday.
