History of the Annual Native American Festival

The annual festival began in 1992 and was moved to Vienna, Maryland in 2005 to bring the celebration closer to their original village sites. The Nause-Waiwash Band of Indians organized the Festival ‘for three reasons: to educate the public and hold onto their culture, raise the self-esteem of their people and raise money for their tribal office and longhouse.’

In 2009, the 17th Annual Native American FestivalCelebration of the Three Eastern Clans - Healing of All Nations‘ was held just around the corner from Tavern House Bed & Breakfast.
