"The Sumter Native American Indian Festival" is set for November 11, 2017 between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. It will be held on the Sumter County Museum grounds in Sumter, SC.
The Edisto River Singers will lend their talents to the festivities by providing culturally authentic drumming and singing throughout the event. Members of our own Tribe will do their colorful regalia and demonstrate various cultural dances commonly performed by our ancestors. Vendors will be on site to provide snacks and beverages. (No coolers, please.) Official cultural artists will have some examples of native art available for purchase and your viewing pleasure. Local tribal memorabilia and crafting material will also be available for viewing and purchase. Face painting and make and take Native American jewelry kits for children will be provided for a fun learning and crafting experience. Our tribal fried bread will also be available for purchase. Another big part of our festival will be the raffle table which includes a 65 quart Yeti cooler. The tickets will be going on sale for $5.00. This event welcomes anyone interested in experiencing a taste of American Indian culture!
