Parade Participant, The Warriors of Anikituhwa, sent us a very special message from their home state of North Carolina. The performance group celebrate the music and culture of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.
The Warriors of Anikituhwa also perform Cherokee social dances, including the Bear Dance, Beaver Hunting Dance and Friendship Dance. They talk about the significance of the dances, their clothing and Cherokee history and culture. They can provide living history demonstrations and programs in flute, storytelling, Cherokee language, bead-work, quill-work and more.
We can’t wait to welcome them to London’s New Year’s Day Parade on January 1st 2019!
