Kernersville, North Carolina
The Strong Sun Pow Wow has been proclaimed as Native American Weekend In North Carolina
by the Governor of North Carolina. For the past 10 years we have seen many people from all over
the United States and overseas attend this event of teaching and sharing our culture of the Native American people.
Some of the things that we share, teach and demonstrate are, flint and steel fire starting, Birds of Prey exhibit,
Traditional Native American Dancing, History of the area and the Yadkin River, Genealogy assistance for
those requesting it and spectator participation. We also share our Beautiful Regalia, which is from many tribes ,
Bands and Nations represented in our Dance Circle. You will also see how highly we honor our Veterans, Elders,
and our Children. These are our defenders, our Teachers and our future. We will have Traditional Craftsman,
buy sell or trade. There will be some good old fashion Native American and American Food on the grounds.
