  • NAIA powwow showcases the traditions of many tribes

    By Albert Bender
    Nashville, Tennessee (NFIC)

    Amid the splendid verdant setting of the Long Hunter State Park, the Native American Indian Association (NAIA) has held its yearly powwow attended by tribal people from across the U.S. and Canada. Ojibwa, Navajo, Iroquois, Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Micmac, Kickapoo, Ho-Chunk – members of these nations and more were all in attendance at the yearly gathering both as attendees as well as vendors and dancers. The powwow has continued to grow with each passing year.

    “We feel this was one of the best powwows ever as we continue to grow more and more. With three days of beautiful weather we were flooded with students from schools in the surrounding counties and their teachers said the powwow was the best history lesson and cultural event they could get,” said Ray Emanuel, Lumbee, Executive Director of NAIA.
