Native American Cultural Exhibition
November 3 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
“The day will consist of a guest speaker, a pow wow with drummers and dancers from the Lumbee Tribe, the Lumbee Ambassadors will be on campus, there will be arts and crafts vendors, and McNeill’s Concessions will be serving Native American cuisine – fry bread, collard wraps – to celebrate the day,” said Locklear. “It’s going to be a time of fellowship and just a great celebration.”
The guest speaker will be Sheila Cummings, president and CEO of Cummings Aerospace, a Native American Woman-Owned small business she started herself in 2009. The company headquarters are located in Huntsville, AL, with satellite locations in Florida and Arizona. Cummings is a native of Pembroke and is a member of the Lumbee Tribe. She holds an aerospace engineering degree from the University of Maryland.
