Old and young gathered for the last day of the Native American Festival in Whigham today (10/17). The public event, or Powwow, is hosted by descendants of the Muskogee Creek tribe, and takes place on their Reservation. "What it is is a gathering of all Nations, and we come together to honor the earth and honor our Nation of Creek Indians and just be together. It's kinda like a family reunion, actually," said Powwow Co-Chair Barbara Gorman.
