FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe is holding its 94th annual Powwow this weekend.

One of the highlights of the powwow that started Friday is Saturday's Fireball competition. What appears to the outside observer as a game of soccer played with a kerosene-soaked ball that's then lit on fire is a deeply spiritual healing ceremony for tribal members. Players dedicate their courage to a loved one who is seriously ill while kicking or carrying the ball.

Sunday's highlight is the traditional clambake featuring lobsters, quahogs and corn.

The powwow will also include the traditional drumming and dancing competitions, which have up to $30,000 in prizes, as well as vendors and artisans and Wampanoag food.

The powwow is held at the Cape Cod fairgrounds in Falmouth.
