Maintaining Catawba tradition involves passing down family histories, belief systems, language, folklore, the arts and other aspects of cultural heritage. The Catawba Cultural Preservation Project (CCPP) is central to the awareness of tribal heritage in the Catawba community. Internal programs include pottery classes, tribal song and dance, ceremonial activities, traditional arts, and language and archaeology studies. Public programs include pottery demonstrations, festivals, and natural and cultural history exhibits. In this video, Wenonah Hair, director of the CCPP, describes the role of the program in the tribal community.
