For Haliwa-Saponi Indian Tribe member Arnold Richardson, Saturday was about educating people at Riverside Mill during the American Indian Festival. “It is knowledge they don’t get in their history books,” Richardson said. For example, he said, Indians never lived in teepees or hunted buffaloes. “There are 567 American Indian tribes,” he said. “The purpose of today is to educate non-Indians on what Indians are about.”
