    NATIVE AMERICANS TO GATHER IN CHARLES CITY, VIRGINIA


    Native Americans from Maine to Florida will join the Chickahominy Indian Tribe as they celebrate their 54rd Annual Fall Festival and Pow-Wow; Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25, 2005; on the Chickahominy Tribal Grounds in Charles City County, Virginia. Grounds open at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 24, with Grand Entry at 12:00 noon. Sunday hours are 11:00-6:00 p.m., with Grand Entry at 1:00 p.m. The festival/Pow-Wow will feature Native American dancers, drummers, singers and crafters. The longest running traditional Pow-Wow in Virginia, the Chickahominy gathered in 1951 at Samaria Indian School, which is now home to Samaria Baptist Church. The Pow-Wow/Fall Festival later moved to the current tribal grounds.



    Keith Wynn, Pow-Wow Coordinator and member of the Chickahominy Tribal Council, believes that the Chickahominy Pow-Wow is an excellent way for the public to share the rich Virginia Indian culture directly with the Indian people. “The 54rd annual Fall Festival and Pow-Wow promises to be an exciting event for all who choose to attend,” comments Wynn. “The Chickahominy Indian Tribe strives to provide a wholesome family environment in which people can learn about the Tribe through song, dance, crafts, lectures and informal conversation.”



    All veterans will be honored during the Grand Entry ceremonies each day with special recognition to soldiers currently serving in the Middle East. Native American crafters will have jewelry, pottery, beadwork, leather crafts, and other Native American arts and crafts for sale. Historical and cultural demonstrations, including backwoods survival demonstrations are planned.



    Special dance exhibitions will take place at various times each day. Food will be available and will feature Indian Fry Bread/tacos, hamburgers and hot dogs, fish and chips and plenty of cold beverages.



    Marvin “Many Horses” Burnette will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Gathering. A member of the Oglala Tribe, Lakota Sioux Nation of South Dakota, and career U.S. Army Veteran, Burnette is a favorite at Pow-Wows across the nation, frequently invited to serve as MC or traditional lead male dancer. Honored to serve, Burnette says, “Although all native people have their own tribal traditions, when we approach the circle, we share differences in cultures as we dance as “One People.”



    The featured host drum will be Kau-Ta-Noh, Jrs., from Pembroke, North Carolina. Several drums have been invited. Lead male dancer is Keith Anderson, Cherokee/Catawba and Executive Director of the Red Crooked Sky dance troupe. Jessica Canaday, Miss Chickahominy, will serve as the lead female dancer. Jay Hill, Seneca/Objibwa, will be the Arena Director.



    The festival is open to the public. No admission is charged; however, donations will be appreciated. Transportation from the parking lot and seating will be available for senior adults and disabled citizens. Tribal officials recommend that attendees bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. Due to health and safety regulations, pets are not permitted on Pow-Wow grounds.

            Hey PW, when you come, introduce yourself to me. I'll be drumming with Falling Water and, most likely, be dancing that day if I can get my outfit together in time. Ace, you know it's always good to have you there.
            Through the good times and bad times, always pray.

                            This is a great event. I love it and the people are wonderful. There is the one ugly guy, Glen C. You all let him know you saw that here, he'll get a laugh out of it, or a complex. He's just one of the many lady killers :) See ya'all there!!

                              One great thing about this pow-wow has been that it always seems to hit when movies are being filmed in Virginia - so there has been a plenty of celebs that have come here. I still have the picture when Richard Gere came and asked could he sit at the drum and sing...they assigned me to watch over him....lol...now that was funny. He was very humble though, and very gracious and signed a few autographs for everyone - that was before the crowd got too big. When we filmed Broken Chain, we took the whole crew there - that was wild too.

                              Has John Adams begun filming here yet? Look for more movies stars to come out....this pow-wow has a great hometown cozy feeling....love the Chickahominy community.

                              Have a great night....
