When the Poarch Creek Indian tribe heard that Lila McCann was going to be in Mobile, Alabama for a concert, they asked if she would come to visit beforehand.

She agreed, and made some new friends in the process.

Lila was welcomed by the youngsters of the tribe - dressed in traditional Poarch Indian clothing.

She also received a basket of blueberries, picked by the tribe's elders.

The Tribal Council presented her with a basket made of pine needles - a true labor of love, as it took three weeks to bleach and dye the needles.

Then it was time to dance in a ceremony that featured the three facets of Poarch -- gospel singing, Pow Wow and stomp dancing. Lila joined in, saying that it was an amazing experience. "I will never forget all the new friends that I have in Poarch, especially those adorable children who greeted me with such pride. It was an honor to be their guest," she said.
