From the Organizer
The Denver American Indian Festival is a Free Family event that is open to ALL people and acts as a Bridge to Understanding between Native and Non-Native by interacting and sharing in the Native culture, dance, music, food, arts and crafts. We have a large Kidz Zone where older Girl Scouts are trained to help children make Native crafts to keep (all free). There are educational and cultural booths and vendors offering Native arts and crafts. We have one booth to help find Native American families willing to be foster parents to Native American children and we found 15 such families last year. We also will be having a Health Fair area open to all for resources and preventative medicine (low cost flu shots) as we as special attention to Native American health issues. There is food of course, and it is what we believe are the best Indian Fry Bread tacos and other items made by Natives. Continuous entertainment is provided free and on both sides of the entertainment are covered seating areas for the elderly or handicapped or anyone in need. We have a great reputation for have a feel good and inspirational event for all ages. Our Veterans and Elders are given their due respect each day by an all-female, all Native and all Veteran color guard.
