Piscataway troupe to perform Thursday night

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 longstanding 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.
