On Saturday, July 13, Aztec Ruins National Monument will be hosting the 4th annual American Indian Cultural Arts Festival from 10am - 2pm. This free event will feature diverse artists from various Native American nations throughout the Southwest and more. Come out and walk through the park picnic area to enjoy the artists demonstrating their techniques and selling their original creations. From contemporary to traditional, the variety of art will offer interests for everyone. The event will also feature dance groups within the plaza of West Ruin.
This event is also made possible by assistance from the Friends of Aztec Ruins National Monument and the Western National Parks Association and Park Store. Both are non-profit organizations supporting education, interpretation, and funding for many of the park's programs and events. Aztec Ruins also partners with The N.A.T.I.V.E. Project, a local non-profit organization supported by grant funding. Michael Billie, local artist and N.A.T.I.V.E. Project mentor, assists to develop business knowledge and increase opportunities among American Indian artists of the Four Corners region and beyond.
