Showcasing a theme of “Parrihos: Partnership” this year, Native American Day is devoted to maintaining Native culture, including stories, languages and traditions for today and for future generations.
Guests will enjoy cultural demonstrations, compelling guest speakers, the Tule River Color Guard, traditional games, music and dancing and much more.
After the fun and lively event, stop by the State Indian Museum to learn and explore even more about Native culture.
