Feature: Mattaponi Indian Tribe's 25th Annual Pow Wow
Chief Mark T. Custalow, the Mattaponi Tribal Council, and Mattaponi People cordially invite you to their 25th Annual Pow Wow
The Mattaponi people strive to promote and share their culture through events and gatherings, such as the Mattaponi Indian Pow Wow, held annually on the third Saturday of June. The Pow Wow is suitable for the entire family and open to the public. This year will be the Mattaponi's 25th Annual Pow Wow and will take place on June 17th, 2023, on the Mattaponi Indian Reservation in King William County, Virginia. Tribal grounds will open at 10:00 a.m., with the grand entry at Noon, and the Pow Wow coming to a close at 5:00 p.m. Bring your lounge chairs, blankets, and plan to stay the entire day. Learn about the Mattaponi Tribe's Powhatan history and culture. There will be Native American dancing and drumming, as well as food, drinks, and fun for everyone. Artisans will also have their handmade items on display and available for purchase.
The Mattaponi Indian Reservation was created from land long held by the Mattaponi by an act of the General Assembly in 1658, making it one of the oldest Indian reservations in the country.
