American Indian dancers, musicians and artists from throughout the Carolinas and Virginia will headline the powwow as they reaffirm intertribal brotherhood and sisterhood and share with the larger community the rich history and contemporary aspirations of Native American people.

Head Man Dancer will be Isaiah Keith Robinson, representing the Coharie, and Head Lady Dancer will be Cheyenne Daniels, Miss Indian North Carolina, representing the Haliwa-Saponi Tribe.

Attendees will be invited to participate in a social Round Dance and a Two-Step Dance, with explanations of the significance of the music and dance offered throughout the program. American Indian arts and crafts will also be on exhibit in the lobby of the PEC throughout the event. The powwow will end with a closing song at approximately 5 p.m.
