Join the Annual Coharie Indian Cultural Pow Wow on September 9-10, 2022 at the Coharie Tribal Center in Clinton, North Carolina.
Celebrate and honor Native American culture and experience American Indian drumming and dancing competitions, American Indian food, crafts, artwork, and exhibits. The Coharie Indian Cultural Pow Wow is a time of education, enjoyment and good food for the whole family.
Each Coharie Indian Cultural Pow Wow dance session begins with a grand entry, a procession of royalty and dancers. The flag bearers lead the procession carrying the eagle staff, the American flag, and frequently, the POW/MIA flag. Being a flag bearer is an honor usually given to a veteran, a respected traditional dancer, or an elder. Indian royalty is next, consisting of tribal and organizational princesses, braves, and other dignitaries. The head dancers lead a single file procession of dancers arranged by category and age. As a sign of respect, everyone is asked to stand during the grand entry and men should remove their head coverings.
Culture, heritage, and pride run strong among the people of the Coharie Tribe. Since 1969, the Annual Coharie Indian Cultural Pow Wow has been a way to celebrate and maintain Native American traditions. To show respect for the event, no alcohol, drugs, or profanity is allowed.
