Nanticoke Indian Tribe holds 45th Annual Powwow

September 14, 2023

The Nanticoke Indian Tribe held its 45th annual Powwow Sept. 9-10 at Hudson Fields, where hundreds of visitors learned of the tribal community who shared their voices, customs and traditions to all in attendance.

Many vendors were on hand for food, music, jewelry, souvenirs, regalia supplies, arts and crafts, beadwork and leather belts and bags. A bird show and a car show was a highlight of the weekend. A church service started off the second day.

The grand entry was held at noon both days. Professional Native American dancers from around the country displayed their tribal music and dances.

Sponsors helping to make this year’s powwow a success are: University of Delaware, State Historic Preservation Office, Sussex County Council, Amazon, Beebe Healthcare, Carl M. Freeman Foundation, Chuck Hall Insurance, Community Bank, Compassion & Choices, Delaware State University, Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Juan Johnson State Farm, Short’s Marine, Tony Street & Sons Septic Services, and many other sponsors of ads for the powwow book.
