The free festival is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Catawba Cultural Center.
The festival dates back to 1990 as a way to connect the tribal and non-tribal communities with the Catawba Indian Nation.
Festival-goers will get a taste of the tribe's culture through performances by drummers and dancers to authentic Catawba songs. There also will be traditional art by Catawba artisans, pottery and beadwork demonstrations and traditional Native American food.
The Herald reports the Catawba Indian Nation is the only federally recognized tribe in South Carolina. Its reservation sits on about 700 acres (1.09 square miles) east of Rock Hill.
