Meherrin Indian Tribe Powwow

The Meherrin Powwow is held annually on the first weekend of October, at the Meherrin Tribal Grounds in Hertford County, North Carolina.

Our Powwow is renowned for its vibrant dance and drum competitions, showcasing the rich cultural heritage of our community. In addition to the competitions, visitors can also browse through traditional craft stalls and sample delicious food from our vendors. The event draws participants and spectators from all over the United States and Canada, making it a truly unforgettable experience.

We would like to extend a heartfelt invitation to our next Powwow and cannot wait to see you there. Our event is a celebration of Indigenous cultures and traditions, and we are excited to share this experience with you. Whether you are a seasoned attendee or a first-time visitor, we promise a warm and welcoming atmosphere that will leave you with lasting memories.
