About 2,500 people from the Carolinas, Georgia and beyond gathered Saturday at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster's Bradley Arts and Sciences Building to celebrate Yap Ye Iswa, or Day of the Catawba.
The cultural festival, which began in 1989, returned after a two-year hiatus.
Yap Ye Iswa, usually celebrated on the tribe's reservation in York County on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, was halted in 2005 due to funding and other issues that forced the tribe to take time to better format and present the festival, said tribal chief Donald "Red Cloud" Rodgers.
