The 27th Annual Monacan Indian Nation Powwow concluded Sunday in Amherst County. The two-day event celebrates the Native American tribe, which has thousands of years of ancestral history in the Bear Mountain area of the county, with a show of Monacan culture, dancing, crafts and food. It also is the group’s largest fundraiser, raising money for expenses including operating the tribal headquarters about 10 miles outside the town of Amherst.
