NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - A traditionally American Indian celebration will take place this weekend at the 27th annual Natchez Powwow at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians.

After more than 3,500 people attended the event last year, the celebration will continue Saturday and Sunday on the site where Natchez Indians once gathered.

Chuck Borum, the chairman of the event, tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1DOFpog ) that the Natchez site is special, especially because the Natchez Indian tribe was one of the last to practice mound building.

The events begin at 10 a.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Borum says tribes represented during the event will include the Choctaw, Comanche, Natchez, Ottawa and Kiowa.
