The Seminole Tribe of Florida will host its annual celebration of Native culture and arts on February 10 -12 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Events will be held in the Hard Rock Live arena and outdoors in the Hooter’s parking lot.
The usual lineup of Native arts, crafts, foods, and music will be expanded to host a Pow Wow dance competition open to all Native people across the Americas. Pow Wows are the Native American people’s way of meeting together, to join in dancing, singing, visiting, renewing old friendships, and making new ones. This is a time method to renew Native American culture and preserve the rich heritage of American Indians.
The Pow Wow will feature a drum competition of northern and southern drums; a dance competition in northern traditional, southern straight, fancy, grass and chicken for the men; and, northern traditional, southern buckskin, fancy, jingle and northern/southern cloth combined for the women.
In addition to the lineup of activities, Country music rocker, Aaron Lewis, will take the stage for a special performance. This is not the first time Lewis has performed at Seminole Hard Rock. First he performed at Hard Rock Live as the leader of the group, Staind, and later as a solo artist with backup musicians.
This year’s Tribal Fair will certainly be one to remember!
