Coharie Pow Wow Festival

September 9 @ 6:00 pm - September 10 @ 10:00 pm


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, 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 are 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 runs 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 are allowed.
