Indian powwows may seem like a thing of the past; however, the 18th Annual Frank Liske Park Powwow is making sure this Indian tradition doesn’t go forgotten. On Aug. 19-20, families can come out to Concord’s Frank Liske Park to see traditional Native American dancing, singing and crafts. George Hoyt, chairman of the Cabarrus Powwow Association, has been going to powwows for 55 years. “I’ve always been very interested in Native American craft and culture,” he says. George also notes that it’s a great educational experience for kids. 7 p.m. Aug. 19; 10 a.m. Aug. 20. Admission is free.For more information, visit www.frankliskepowwow.com.
