Drums on the Conococheague: Then and Now A Native American Powwow

September 7 @ 9:00 am - September 8 @ 4:00 pm

| $5.00

Native American Heritage will be celebrated with two exciting days of drumming, dancing and singing at the Conococheague Institute 12995 Bain Road, Mercersburg, PA, September 7th and 8th 2019. The event will run from 9am-8pm on the 7th and 11am-4pm on the 8th. Cost is $5 per person under the age of 12. Eventgoers will be introduced to a variety of Native American craft and lifeway demonstrations. Dancing, drumming, and singing will be used to explain the bridge between ancient and modern Powwows and the spiritual significance of these activities. The public will be invited to join in for some of the dances and to have fun while they learn about the Eastern Native Heritage.
Both days will feature a narrated reenactment of a skirmish, complete with the attack on a cabin and the taking of captives.
Other customs that attendees may see include: smudging with sage, keeping the sacred fire going, praying to the Creator and respect for elders.
Our buildings will be open to the public, including the library, Negley Cabin, and the Davis-Chambers House (c. 1750s).
This is a rain or shine event. Vendors will be on site for food purchase.
