Native American Cultural Celebration Speaker: Mark Tayac @ UMW Chandler Ballroom, UC

At the time of Columbus, as many as 10 million Native Americans lived in North America. A succession of Algonquian peoples ultimately coalesced into the Piscataway Nation of the Chesapeake & Tidewater regions of Maryland. The Piscataway were the first Native Americans to encounter Captain John Smith along the banks of the Potomac River in 1608. Today, Mark Tayac and the Piscataway Nation carry on the long-standing traditions, culture and heritage of their indigenous ancestors. From Tayac Territory near Port Tobacco, MD, Mark Tayac travels extensively with the Piscataway Nation Singers & Dancers presenting a colorful, educational and entertaining powwow-style campus event featuring American Indian Dance, Drum & Song. In addition to his many college campus performances, Mark Tayac is one of the most requested campus speakers in the mid-Atlantic region for audiences who want to learn more about American Indian history, culture and traditions. Mark is a frequent contributor to TV specials on the History Channel and Discovery Channel and appears regularly at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC, national pow-wows and major festivals.
