Lumbee Tribe Boys & Girls Clubs’ Host Annual "End of Summer Camp Mini–Powwow” 2023

Today the seven Lumbee Tribe Boys & Girls Clubs’ hosted our annual Boys & Girls Club “End of Summer Camp Mini–Powwow." The event is a culmination of cultural activities that took place during the summer camps, which included dance, drumming, singing, pottery making, basket weaving, beading and corn dolls. Around 300 children participated in the Lumbee Tribe Boys & Girls Clubs’ summer camps. The children also had an opportunity to showcase the arts projects that they made during the summer. This event is more than just fun, It is an important part of summer camp because it teaches the children about the powwow. The children learn about grand entry, the tribute to veterans, presentation of the tribal colors, history of dances, and much more.

Thank you to the Lumbee Tribe Ambassadors, Senior Ms. Lumbee and other visitors who came out to support our children. Thank you to our Boys & Girls' Club staff for teaching our boys and girls so much this summer. Also thank you to Mrs. Cindy Locklear for assisting the children all summer by teaching them how to make baskets and coming today to showcase the children’s beautiful finished works. We would also like to thank Angela Lombardy and Ashley Moody and the N.C. Museum of Art for partnering with the Boys & Girls Club and supporting our art and cultural program this summer as well as art projects across the state of N.C. Thank you to the Cumberland County Cultural Team for coming out today to dance, drum, and sing during the celebration.
