Beat of a different drum

Indian nations as far away as Canada and Oklahoma traveled to participate in the 2011 Annual Edisto Indian Natchez-Kusso Powwow in Ridgeville. Anthony Davidson, chief of the Edisto Four Hole Indian Organization, said a powwow is like a family reunion as tribes come together to visit and celebrate their cultures.

A tradition older than America was even more special last year as the Edisto Indian tribe gained state recognition.

An artist at his best. I like how the video and photos work together. Simply wonderful.

Me and my Father-in-law joined in on the PowWow the last day which was Saturday. It was amazing and we wished that we had joined in on Friday and stayed the night. There is so much more to this event than was shared in the story and I hope to change that next year when We hopefully attend again! There were so many venders with homemade traditional artifacts and we bought some of them to display in our home. I would not like to see this event die off and the history of these people need to be presented in more detail. There is so much to tell and unfortunately so little interest it seems, I hope that I'm wrong...
