Native American Festival June 2016

At DeSoto Caverns we love family, and one of the many things we love about our Native American Festival is how much their cultures emphasizes family! Beyond the beautiful dancing, musical talent, and elaborate headdresses and regalia, the heart of the Native American culture is family. As you look through the photos, you'll notice that many of our entertaining Native American tribes have their children with them because they value passing on their culture from one generation to the next. It was a wonderful experience getting to learn about how strongly the Native American tribes represented value learning from each other and respecting the customs of other tribes as well as protecting and passing on their own traditions and history. This year we were proud to host multiple Native American tribes including, the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Plainsmen, and Aztec Tribes.

We'd like to thank all of our guests for attending this event! It is because of your overwhelming positive responses from last year's festival, that we were able to bring you even more Native American tribes, cultural representations (an authentic encampment, blowgun demonstrations, headdress displays, etc.), and even more festival vendors! It is only through your support that we are able to bring you more events that you love! We'd also like to thank our Native American Tribes for sharing their culture, history, dance, music, language, families, and hearts with us! They did an incredible job and we cannot wait to see them again next year!
