  • Lumbee Fall Pow-wow - Oct. 24-26, 2008

    LUMBEE FALL POW-WOW
    OCTOBER 24th – 26th, 2008

    OVER $8,000.00 IN PRIZE MONEY

    The annual Lumbee Tribal fall Pow-Wow has been set by the LRDA Board of Directors the weekend of October 24th – 26th. The location of the event will be on Prospect Road in Pembroke, NC across from UNC-Pembroke.

    A special appearance at the event this year will be Movie Star, poet, and champion grass dancer Solomon Trimble, Mescalero Apache, Lakota, from Portland, Oregon.

    Trimble will star in a major motion film called Twilight, which is expected to premier in October, or November. His talent manager is a former Miss Lumbee, Jackie Jacobs who lives in Seattle, Washington, and is owner of the JTalent Group. Solomon also holds a masters degree and is honing his talent at spoken word poet, and provides lectures to native youth on the subject of tobacco cessation.

    Trimble has been a grass dancer since the age of 3, and will showcase his talent at the Pow-Wow. His personal information and story about the movie can be found on my-space on the Internet.

    Over $8,000.00 in prize money will be awarded in the adult and youth dance categories. LRDA is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and began sponsoring Lumbee Tribal Pow-Wows in the early 1970’s. This event and Lumbee Homecoming has lead to a massive renaissance of traditional Lumbee Culture and pride over the past four decades.

    Lumbee youth have showcased this culture and heritage all across the nation at many inter-tribal events, and at the Miss America and Miss Indian World pageants with great success.

    Gates for the public will open at 4 pm. on Friday October 24th, and run through Sunday, October 26th. Please visit our web-site as we continue to update with additional information on grand entry times, competition categories, etc.

    Vendors and traders can download applications at the LRDA web site (Lumbee Regional Development Assoication, Inc. (910)521-8602), or call our office at 910-521-8602 to obtain one by mail or fax.

                  Will somebody please say hi to Ray, Paul, Joel..oops...J.D., and Terry and Onie (sp) White from Little Joe's dad!

                  It was fun watching those guys when they were kids. Well, except for Ray.lol

                  And did anybody ever hear the story of Mr. Pete's (Ray's dad) bear claw necklace?


                  Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

                    No they didn't. I seriously doubt they will split it this year. I'll try to find out and post the answer.

                      Directly from the powwow chairman:

                      "All split between Northern & Southern, (Drum & Dance)."

                      So there you go...

                          Y'all are making me feel really old now. It was really good to see Terry a few weeks ago. Old times all over again.
