VIDEO: 3 East Coast Pow Wows
As pow wow season begins to wind down, ICTMN is reporting on three events held by the Nottoway Indian Tribe of Virginia, Chickahominy Tribe and the Meherrin Tribal Nation.
According to Chief Lynette Allston of the Nottoway tribe, the important takeaway from her pow wow, which happens annually at the end of September in Surry County, Virginia, is that it is important to celebrate Native culture and “ust be together.”
The 62nd Annual Chickahominy Pow Wow, which took place September 28th and 29th in Providence Forge, Virginia, focused on Eastern Woodlands Indian culture.
And the Meherrin Indian Natin celebrated their 25th Annual Pow Wow last weekend in Ahoskie, North Carolina.
Below is a video of the three events with interviews from ITCMN's Vincent Schilling.
