PowWow @ Durham SSM


Went to my first North Carolina powwow, at the School of Science & Math Saturday (2/6). Lumbee and Tuscarora from the Lumberton/Pembroke area were in attendance, not sure what other peoples/areas represented. This is the 19th annual PowWow there, organized by retired instructor Joe Liles, who also performed with the drum group Southern Sun, and did fantastic drawings for the program and posters.

This video is from the Grand Entry, around 1 pm:

I am really loving these jingle dresses. The jingles were originally made from recycled snuff can lids. Very creative reuse!
