WHISPERS FROM THE PAST
A Native American Experience
Sunday, October 5 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Native American life will take shape through demonstrations of flintknapping, cooking and hunting weapons, and activities like leaf pounding, beading, corn grinding, gourd painting and pottery. Children can try their hands at games and activities. Hear the sounds of drums and flutes, and the highlight of the day - three dance performances by Native American Pow-Wow dancers. Vendors will sell fry bread, Indian tacos and roasted corn, as well as coins and other items for children.
