    1-No, this was not a wedding event,I am not a wedding planner.......(however I wish I was, I could use some assistance for my own wedding)
    2-Our prize money was in the envelopes at 5pm on friday evening, I know...I was the one who counted it out. We weren't hurting for funds at all.

    I'm not saying all of this to "save" next years pow wow, because the truth is there will not be one. I am saying this because it was pleasure to work with the Chavis Family and I dont want any false information to be spread about or around this event.
    Again, I appreciate everyone that came out. Thank you!

    Keep your head up Lumbee Pride. I know you ARE a good person with a good heart. I will always consider you my friend!

    "Don't let the rumors get you down, 'cause come the next powwow, these same people will have something new to talk about!"

    "WHOs your people?" *L

    Thank YOU!!

    I want to say Thank You to everyone that came out to support the Lumber River Pow Wow and Festival.

    KTNjrs and Southern Eagle sounded amazing.

    John W. Oxendine, Wendy Strickland, John Chavis, KTNJrs., Joann Lowry, and Bostic Locklear did a great job as head staff.

    Due to the HEAVY rain we had to cancel saturdays activities, everything was pretty much flooded...including the rain site.

    All registered dancers/drums will receive evening monies.All in all the Chavis family wanted to THANK everyone for coming out.

    Rain?

    There are few questions about rain.

    If it rains on friday we will cancel for the evening and begin on Saturday at 2pm-Grand Entry.

    What if it rains Saturday?? We have a rain site that will be used.

    Thanks! April

    Contest?

    Is this a contest or traditional powwow? If I'm not mistaken it is being held the same weekend as the NC State powwow.
