Tribal drummers at Art AttackPublished 8:03pm Tuesday, April 24, 2012
NEW BUFFALO — The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians will perform traditional drumming and dancing at the Pokagon Fund Art Gallery, 821 East Buffalo St., during Art Attack at 3 p.m. Saturday,
These tribal artisans recently performed during the Super Bowl XLVI Festivities in Indianapolis earlier this year.
For generations, drums have been at the center of Native American lives, during religious ceremonies and social gatherings.
Drumming and dancing are central components of tribal pow wows. Tribal citizens use drums to connect with the Great Spirit.
“We are delighted to have members of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians sharing their rich heritage and tradition with those attending Art Attack,” said Mary Dunbar, executive director of The Pokagon Fund. “It is a splendid sight to see the Pokagons dressed in their colorful regalia. It will make our art gallery come to life.”
I hope everyone will join us at 3 this Saturday,” Mary Dunbar, executive director of The Pokagon Fund, said Tuesday.
