The Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation Indian Tribe sponsors a cultural festival during the second week in June. The tribe is in the process of developing 25 acres of land in Pleasant Grove as a cultural center. The Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation Indian Tribe is continuously committed to the preservation, protection and promotion of our history, culture and traditions; while providing social, economic and educational resources, opportunities and services that will contribute to the well being of the tribal community. The Occaneechi Tribal Office shares space with a small museum that deals with the history and culture of the Occaneechi and other eastern tribes. On display is a small collection of pottery and baskets, as well as a variety of artifacts of Occaneechi life ranging from arrowheads to rabbit traps to parts of an old moonshine still used by one of the Indian families. A 30-minute documentary film "Occaneechi-The Survival of the Circle" may be viewed on site. Mailing Address: PO Box 356, Mebane NC 27302
