GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - People from Grady county and surrounding areas got a chance to experience traditional Native American culture Friday.

The Lower Muskogee Creek Tribe hosted an Intertribal Pow Wow in Whigham.

It's the 50th year the tribe has invited the public to learn more about its customs and way of life.

Students came out to learn traditional dances and check out handmade crafts.

Muskogee Creek Historian Dr. Peggy Venable said, “You're going to find the best food, the best dancing.  We have all kinds of crafts.  And you're going to find a lot of music.”

The Pow Wow is now open to the public and continues until Sunday afternoon.
