6th ANNUAL POWWOW ON MANATAWNY CREEK

SATURDAY MAY 4 AND SUNDAY MAY 5, 2019

The Circle Legacy Center 6th annual Powwow on Manatawny Creek will take place on May 4 and 5, 2019.  Our lineup for this year is growing and I am hopeful that this trend will continue as we strive to offer our friends and neighbors throughout this region a full and meaningful experience and bring an awareness of Native American culture and tradition.

Barry Lee will return as our MC this year and will join with Barbara Christy and the Spirit Wing band to entertain us once again.

Barry and Barbara Christy are the lead vocals for the Spirit Wing band.  Spirit Wing has appeared at many Native American Festivals throughout North America. They are also a popular feature at Coffeehouses and Folk and Acoustic music festivals. Their music comes from a strong folk/acoustic music tradition along with traditional Native songs that date back hundreds of years. All four members of Spirit Wing have performed in various types of bands and ensembles that feature Rock, Blues, Bluegrass, and Country music.

 

Head Dancers are Hannah Jacobs-Keller, (Hannah is of the Lumbee tribe in Robeson County,  Pembroke North Carolina), and Michael Nephew, President of  the American Indian Society, he is an enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, and part Seneca and Cayuga

 

 

 

 

 

OUR HOST DRUM

This year we are once again being blessed with the Zotigh Singers as Host Drum, along with our friends and co-host drums Medicine Horse Singers and Red Blanket Singers.

A powwow is an opportunity to re-connect with old friends/family and make new relationships .  We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces but more importantly we are looking forward to meeting and creating new friends and acquaintances.

I am pleased to announce that Matt and Chris Claire will be joining this year’s celebration as Guest Dancers. As many of you already may be aware, Matt is an extraordinary Hoop Dancer and has assured me he will be prepared to perform.
