Mattaponi Tribe Powwow

As an addition to yesterday's post, the free admission for certain national parks (10 in Virginia) will be in effect this coming weekend, June 20 and 21, as well as the other two weekends I mentioned.

Also this Saturday, June 20, the Mattaponi Indian tribe will have its 14th Annual Powwow at their reservation on the Mattaponi River. The Mattaponi River joins the Pamunkey River (named after another recognized Virginia tribe) at West Point creating the York River. We can see West Point from the decks at the York River Inn.

This is the reservation sitting along the banks of the Mattaponi River in King William County:

The Powwow will begin at 10 am and end at 5 pm with an admission of $5, free for children. American Indian dancing, drumming, food, and arts and crafts will be featured during the day. For more information, call 804 769-8783.
