Louisiana roots music and more. Native American tribes from across the state celebrate and share their traditional cultures through drumming and dance, as well as storytelling. Presenters demonstrate traditional jewelry making and offer dance lessons. Craft and food vendors, too. This annual event is hosted by the Attakapas Opelousas Prairie Tribe.
