HOLLISTER, N.C. (AP) - The Haliwa-Saponi tribe is holding its 49th annual homecoming event, a three-day powwow in Hollister.

Tribe member Danny Richardson tells the Rocky Mount Telegram (https://bit.ly/1mlZzgq) that the event attracts members of the Haliwa-Saponi who stayed in Hollister along with those who moved away.

The Haliwa-Saponi Powwow usually draws thousands from across North Carolina and beyond for a weekend filled with singing, dancing, drum, art, crafts, food and other activities.

The event is held the third weekend in April to commemorate the tribe’s recognition by the N.C. General Assembly in 1965. It continues through Sunday.
