Upper Mattaponi Powwow (May)

Upper Mattaponi Indian Tribe Powwow


ANNOUNCEMENT: Covid 19/Coronavirus:
In an effort to do our part in curtailing the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, and in respect of Governor Northam's Executive Order Number 55 urging all Virginians to stay-at-home until June 10, 2020, Tribal Council has decided to postpone the 33rd Annual Upper Mattaponi Powwow. 

Mark your calendars for October 10th and 11th, 2020 and plan to join us on Indigenous People's Day Weekend to celebrate our annual gathering then. 

We look forward to seeing everyone in the Fall. Please stay safe in these trying times!
