The public is invited to a FREE and family-friendly celebration of Native American culture, dancing and singing at the sixth annual Native American Heritage Month celebration at Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach. The event is this Saturday November 14th, from 1-4 pm.

Call For Dancers:

Native American Drum Groups, singers and dancers will be in full regalia to honor the event. Additionally, certified wildlife handlers Jimmy and Pearl Beamer will be bringing a live red-tailed hawk and a live owl.

The event has been growing in popularity in the past years. According to organizers:

“Many people do not realize that there are over 45,000 people of Native American descent living in Virginia, and that we are alive and well.”

“This event is to show fellow members of our community that there is a rich and vibrant Native culture here in Hampton Roads and what better way than to honor than with a celebration of culture during Native American Heritage Month.”

Brad Scott, CEO and President of Cetan Corp, a Native American owned business software company ranked as the #1 Native American entrepreneur by Inc. Magazine  in 2011, says “Cetan Corp appreciates this opportunity to support our region’s Native American community. We are proud to support this event wholeheartedly.”

For information call 757-215-8055 or visit the event site here. Public and Media are invited to this Family-Friendly and free event
