  1. wa’ho kola, If you get the chance to go to this pow-wow you won’t disappointed. Over the decades many pow-wows have changed & forgotten primary purpose of the pow-wows. This one is located in a good place & and has pretty good spirit surrounding!

  2. This powwow is non native or have heritage or their tribe is not federally recognized. They mean well but fall short. Their host drum is a group called namawochi meaning native man women child their songs sound like nursery rhymes and mumbled syllables before singing a song they pass around a songbook to each other their sound is non native. The guest drum is a group of white guys, the older gentleman the lead singer tries to sing ponca songs and plains tribe style they fall short of singing songs properly. Their head staff and the committee doesn’t understand proper attire or protocol and turns into chiefs and not enough Indians.

    • It may come as a surprise to some,but not all Native American tribes have their origins from the Asian continent. Their are some groups that are as white as any one of European extract. There is evidence with some of the ancient arrowheads that point to some east coast tribes having a European origin, perhaps a couple of thousand years ago. The more we learn, the more we find a richer and wider diversity to the Native American Culture.

  3. Husband is a full blooded Cherokee Indian . Love a couple Pow Wow’s a year . We in Cape Canaveral . So Vero Beach is close. Can he bring his own drum and gone a drum circle?
