The Circle of Native Nations celebrated the end of a long, cold winter with their 25th annual pow wow on Saturday.

The pow wow was at the First Nations Center at the University of Wisconsin Superior. The center's director, Gary Johnson, said there were tribes there from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and even Canada.

Johnson said the pow wow is a celebration of life.

"The dance circle represents the circle of life," he said. "The drum is the heartbeat of our nation and that beat is drawing people out to join into that circle of life. This is a celebration. It's part homecoming, it's part spiritual, it's part social."
