National American Indian Festival: Saturday, November 14

Are you or your children interested in American Indian heritage? Then you're in luck! November is National American Indian Heritage Month and a great FREE event is taking place right here in Prince George's County this Saturday, November 14.

The National American Indian Festival will take place this Saturday from 10am until 3pm at the Patuxent River 4-H Center in Upper Marlboro. Come on out to the festival to learn all about the culture and history of the people of the First Nations.

Very respected elder Clayton Old Elk will emcee a program featuring live music from Ron Warren and Janice Torres. Never heard of them? Me either, but apparently they are pretty renound Native American musicians performing on the flute and vocals/percussion, respectively.

You can also try some archery and canoeing (try not to fall in, I bet the water is pretty cold these days!). There will be artifacts, exhibits and demonstrations. You can make crafts, play games and listen to stories. And, of course, you can eat! Yummy food including including Indian tacos, fry bread and more will be available.

Did I mention it's all free? (Well, probably not the food, but that's to be expected.)
