The American Indian cultural club at North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, along with the Office of Admissions, will host the school’s annual Native American Powwow on Saturday, February 6, 2021.

This will be a live event and you are invited to come, or watch it virtually.  Go to https://www.ncssm.edu/powwow to find all the information about this event and get the link to watch it virtually.

We want to promote our powwow as a friendly, family-oriented event for people of all races to celebrate and learn about the culture of the First Americans. The powwow commences with a Grand Entry of all the dancers. A Master of Ceremonies takes charge of announcing when events will take place and explaining what is going on. Grand Entry is followed by a Flag Song to honor both the American flag and the traditional flag of Indian people: the Eagle Staff. Next comes a Veteran’s Song to honor all those who have served our country in any of the branches of the military. The remainder of the dance session is full of intertribal and exhibition dances to feature different dance styles and categories. Specialty dances like hoop dances, smoke dances, round dances, two-steps are woven into the dance program. Audience participation is encouraged by the MC on some of the dances. This is a traditional powwow that emphasizes intertribal brotherhood and sisterhood in addition to education about Indian culture. There are no dance contests.  Typically, we are fortunate to have somewhere around 150 dancers and six drums in attendance. Our audience size over the entire day is approximately 2000.

Throughout the powwow, arts and crafts traders are set up in the foyer of the gymnasium. Woodcarving, silverwork, beadwork, leatherwork, etc. are on display for educational purposes as well as for purchase.  The powwow features Honor Dances for the Head Man Dancer and Head Lady Dancer. The powwow concludes with a Closing Song.
