Pow Wow Etiquette

Eastern Bull Drum is a traditional, intertribal Native American drum based in Greenville, North Carolina. The group is composed of members of the Cherokee, Meherrin, Coharie, Lumbee, Monacan, Waccamaw-Siouan, Metis, Tuscarora, and Mattamuskeet tribes.

The Drum was formed in 1994 with the assistance from the East Carolina Native American Organization (ECNAO), which was under the leadership of Kim Sampson Hunt at that time. Founded on the philosophy of community involvement, the Drum visits between 30-40 schools throughout the year educating students about Native American Dance, Music, and Culture. A major emphasis is placed on teaching and correcting Native American stereotypes and misconceptions that still exist in this country. The Eastern Bull family is very proud of the many milestones we have crossed and of particular importance to us, is being together for more than ten years. Eastern Bull performs at festivals, civic organizations, adult care centers, state and federal correction centers, and pow-wows throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Ohio.

In September, 1999 the floodwaters from Hurricane Floyd hit Eastern North Carolina with little warning. Members of the drum responded with community involvement by working in the Red Cross Shelters, donating money to needy Native and non-Native families, sheltering displaced animals, and cleaning up debris in the community.

Eastern Bull recorded “Pow-Wow Voices” featuring John Blackfeather in 1998 and released "Eastern Bull Live & Kickin" in March 2000. The drum released "Songs of the Circle" in July 2007. The CD may be ordered through the website.

In April 2001, The Eastern Bull Native American Cultural Center was dedicated. This is the first facility in the Pitt County area specifically designed to meet the cultural, educational, and social needs of Native Americans.  The Center provides Native Americans with a place to meet, work on crafts, and fellowship.  The Center also serves as a place to practice and a home office for Eastern Bull Drum and Singers.
