EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Chippewa Valley Technical College celebrated the diversity of its students Monday, hosting its 5th Annual American Indian Pow Exhibition.

The event included song, dance and traditional clothing.

Traditional drum music is played and serves as a representation of the human heart beat.

Dancers from around the state came ranging from ages 3 to 70.

The school says that the event is for everyone, not just the students.

"This event brings folks together. It's a social gathering. It's open to the public, it's welcome. We welcome folks to come in, socialize, learn a little bit about a little more of the history of the cultures that have inhabited this region for many generations, " explains Michael Ojibway, Diversity Manager at CVTC.

Ojibway says they also had American Indian Veterans to lead in the color guard and presentation of flags during the event.
