Native American culture to be showcased at an awareness day at Westwood Junior School, March

NATIVE American Indians will descend on Westwood Junior School, March, tomorrow for a “Friends Pow-wow Awareness Day” – a spectacular showcase and celebration of Native American culture, music, dance and crafts.

Doors open at 10am for the event, which is being run in aid of the charity Friends of the Rez which is running a pow wow in 2013.

John Chappell, who heads up the charity, said: “The opportunity to host an awareness day and to have our Native American friends over to showcase their culture is amazing.

“The day will be full of music and dance, as well as a chance to sample a range of refreshments including Native American style fry-bread. It will be a great day out for all the family.”

Native American guests will join British enthusiasts dressed in authentic regalia throughout the day. There will be demonstrations of dance, interpreting and respecting the Native American traditions stretching back centuries.
