Native American Troupe to Bring 'Living History' to ACC
Mark Tayac and the Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday in Penn College's Klump Academic Center Auditorium. The group carries on the long-standing traditions, culture and heritage of its members' indigenous ancestors, the first Native Americans to encounter Capt. John Smith along the banks of the Potomac River in 1608. A frequent contributor to television specials on the History Channel and the Discovery Channel, the troupe appears regularly at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of the American Indian, national pow-wows, major festivals and colleges across the country. From Tayac Territory (near Port Tobacco, Maryland), Tayac travels throughout Europe, Canada and the U.S. with the Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers to present a colorful, educational and entertaining pow wow-style event featuring American Indian dance, drum and song. Admission is free.
