The Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation (OBSN) invites the public to a dedication ceremony for a new replica village at River Park, downtown Hillsborough, N.C. on Saturday, December 17th, at 12 pm. The ceremony will include a Tutelo prayer, ceremonial smudging, installation of palisade posts and brief remarks from representatives of OBSN. For more than a year, members of the OBSN Tribal Council have worked with a group of dedicated citizens and representatives from Orange County Government, the Town of Hillsborough and the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough to plan for the construction of a new replica Occaneechi village in River Park along the Riverwalk. The new replica village is scheduled for completion in 2017. Tribal Council member John “Blackfeather” Jeffries led the construction of an earlier replica village in the 1990s, which served as a popular destination for visitors and residents to learn the history of Piedmont North Carolina’s original peoples through pow wows, living history and educational programs.
