POSTED: April 25, 2013 1:00 a.m.

The Yonah Band of Cherokees will hold its annual Spring Pow Wow on April 27-28 at Gabby’s Cabins, 3083 Ga. 75 in the Cleveland area.

The event will include intertribal Native American dancers, crafts, Cherokee displays and artisan demonstrations.

Children can pose in special regalia for pictures as Cherokee “Little People” and have a temporary tattoo of their names in Cherokee, with parental approval. Food offerings will include bison burgers, gator strips, fry bread and taco fry bread.

All drums and dancers are welcome. The Host Drum will be Dog River Singer’s, Head Man will be Joey Pierce, Head Woman will be Janell Wilder and the Master of Ceremonies will be Steve Mansfield.

Stage performances will be offered by “The Women of Heart,” flutist Ryan “Little Eagle” Molina, Native American Music Award recipient for 2012’s Up and Rising Star Award, and “The Modern String Band.”

Donations are welcome. All profits will go toward the Future Band of Cherokees Heritage Center, a nonprofit museum and Authentic Cherokee Village and Genealogy Research Facility set for White County.

YBC also has partnered with the Georgia Heritage Center for the Arts in Helen to have an exhibit of Native American artifact reproductions during April.
