Amerind AutumnFest


Amerind Museum's Annual Autumn Fest celebrates that culture of the Tohono O'odham Native people with food, family games, singing and dancing, and artists.  All activities will be led by O'odham presenters.  The Tohono O'odham Nation is one of Arizona's largest Native American tribes.  Rich in tradition, history and culture, O'odham teachers, artists, singers and dancers will hold a day-long cultural celebration at the Amerind Museum in Dragoon, Arizona, a 1-hour drive east of Tucson in scenic Texas Canyon.

Traditional singing and dance groups will share their art with the public.  A waila band will perform some toe-tapping dance tunes. O'odham men and women will demonstrate and teach traditional games, such as the women's intensely competitive field hockey game called "Toka."  O'odham artists are known for their basketry, wood carvings, and paintings.  Many O'odham artists will demonstrate their work and sell directly to the public.  No event would be complete without O'odham food.  Traditional foods will be served alongside everyone's favorite festival food--frybread!  O'odham elders will make presentations about their people's culture and history.  Expand your cultural horizons and join the Amerind for family friendly fun-filled autumn day.

Event Hours are 10:00am - 5:00 pm
