It was the right occasion for some sweet fun in the sun at this year's Nottoway Indian Tribe of Virginia powwow - Video and pictures by Vincent Schilling

It was a great turnout this past weekend where the Nottoway Indian Tribe of Virginia celebrated its 2019 annual powwow.

In addition to the fun in the sun to be expected at a traditional powwow, the emcee Rick Kelly, Nottoway Indian Tribe of Virginia, took some time to break from traditional dances to offer some fun for the kids.
