Steeped in culture and tradition, the 46th annual Native American Day will take place on Friday, Sept. 27 on the south steps of the State Capitol building in Sacramento from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This free event is sponsored by the State Tribal Liaisons of California, the California Department of Justice, the California Environmental Protection Agency, the State Indian Museum and California State Parks.
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.
While the event at the State Capitol is free, normal museum hours and admission prices apply for the State Indian Museum, located at 2618 K St. in Sacramento.
Current exhibits include traditional basketry, beadwork, ceremonial regalia and hunting and fishing items associated with many of the tribes of California, as well as contemporary artwork.
