Pow-wow set for May 18-19


CROSSVILLE — Everyone is invited to come attend the educational and cultural event, Pow-Wow on the Plateau "Honoring All Survivors" on May 18 and 19 at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds. There will be many Indian tribes and dance styles represented. Bert Cox will be the master of ceremonies.

The theme is "Honoring All Survivors." This is an event for everyone. We all overcome many things — rape, domestic violence, cancer, mental issues, drug and alcohol issues, war, death of a loved one and many more issues. For that, we honor those who continue on. Life is a struggle and we focus all too often on the negative and forget to be thankful for our many blessings. So we are celebrating life.

Native Sisters Foods will be offering Indian fry bread, buffalo burgers, elk burgers and many other traditional American Indian foods.

There will also be a variety of craft vendors and demonstrators with many beautiful, unique items for sale.

Please come and enjoy time learning and enjoying this cultural event. Everyone is welcome; please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. Remember, this is a family event so no drugs or alcohol are permitted on the grounds. Hope to see you there!

All active military, law enforcement, firefighters and EMTs will be admitted free. Adults are $6, seniors $3, children 5-16 $3, and children under 4 are free.
