The 7th annual Running Water Singers Powwow, postponed by Hurricane Matthew, is rescheduled to October 28-29, 2016. All are welcome to come and watch the dances, meet artists and crafters, and enjoy Native American foods.
This event is being held at Les Maxwell Indian School, 102 Indian Drive, Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Many Native American tribes that will represented, including the Lumbee, Coharie, Waccamaw Siouan, Haliwa Saponi, Tuscarora, and other tribes from out-of-state.
According to Nina Locklear, “We all come together and share our culture through singing and dancing. There will be over 100 dancers showcasing their regalia and their style of dance.”
In addition to singing and dancing, there will also be arts and crafts vendors selling Native American jewelry, dreamcatchers, t-shirts, and more.
There will also be a variety of Native American foods to try.
Plus, since it is close to Halloween, a little extra fun has been planned for the children: a trunk-or-treat held on Saturday during the dinner break.
