Today we has a cool field trip to Multicultural Indian Weekend in Danville, Al. Really in the middle of no where. But once we got there it we had a great time.
About 15,000 people attended the 2011 Multicultural Indian Event, an annual festival held in May and sponsored by the Lawrence County Native American Student Club. Indian heritage is kept alive in crafts, music, dance, ceremony, and camaraderie. The 24th Annual Multicultural Indian Event was held on May 19 – 21, 2011 and included a Cherokee Living History Encampment by Diamond Brown from North Carolina, Rick Bird Drum/Singers from Cherokee, NC, Whitehorse Drum, Gospel, Country and Bluegrass Music. Native crafts and customs came alive through actual demonstrations that included flint-knapping, silversmithing, finger-weaving, gorget-making, stickball, drum-making, woodcarving, blacksmithing, basket making, pottery-making, stone pipe-making and more.
