The Guilford Native American Association held its 44th annual Pow Wow on September 17-19 at Country Park in Greensboro.
Pow Wow is that time of year when Native Americans get together to dance, sing, visit with old friends and meet new ones. The event included a dance and drum competition, arts and crafts, and traditional food.
The Guilford Native American Association is a Native American community association in Guilford County, North Carolina. It is a North Carolina State-recognized American Indian Organization, and is a United Way referral agency. Incorporated in September 1975 by the late Lonnie and Ruth Revels as a non-profit education advocacy group, the association has grown to encompass child care, employment, and age-based community programs. It is the oldest American Indian urban association in North Carolina and one of the oldest organizations of its kind in the United States.
Since 1967, the Carolina Peacemaker has served as North Carolina’s leading news weekly with a national reputation. Founded by Dr. John Kilimanjaro, the newspaper is published by Carolina Newspaper, Inc.
