Many attended the annual Red Bottom Celebration in Frazer last weekend. Xander Little Thunder of Oswego was one of the many dancers wearing colorful regalia. The oldest powwow on the Fort Peck Reservation, stories vary about how and when Red Bottom started, but organizers of the event said it dates to either 1902 or 1903. Some people say annual powwows in Frazer date to the 1880s. Celebrating Native American culture and traditions through dancing, food, crafts, fellowship and a feed where over 100 pounds of roast was served, the four-day event attracted dancers and others from several reservations throughout Montana, Colorado, South Dakota and Saskatchewan and Manitoba in Canada.
