Dances, drums, food and fun were all part of the 25th annual Indian Trail Pow Wow held last weekend at Indian Trail Elementary School.
Sponsored by the Metrolina Native American Association, the gathering draws native Americans from across the Carolinas and the nation to celebrate their history and culture. It also recalls Indian Trail's history as a trading path for early settlers and native Americans.
