October 14 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

$10

Join us for the Moundville Native American Festival at Moundville Archaeological Park on October 12-15, 2022! We will have Native American performers, demonstrators, and Living History teachers to celebrate Native American culture.

About

The event features artists, craftsmen and educators from around the nation sharing their knowledge of Native American culture. Aside from traditional activities, organizers plan to add a virtual component this 34rd year of the festival by reflecting on the past and celebrating how far the event has come.

The festival will include several prominent Native American performers. Lyndon Alec will perform hoop dancing, and the group Chikasha Hithla will demonstrate Chickasaw stomp dancing.

Living history presenters will re-enact how different Native American tribes lived and thrived over the years. Presenters will demonstrate cooking, dressmaking, tools and weapons. Demonstration arbors will feature Native American beadwork, pottery firing, textile making and other traditional Native American crafts. A Knapper’s Corner will be located by the riverbank where stone tool making demonstrations will take place.

The children’s area will include numerous crafts activities, stickball demonstrations and other educational activities. Visitors are also encouraged to visit the Jones Archaeological Museum, gift shop and café, which will be open throughout the festival.

Vendors will sell Native American crafts throughout the festival. Vendors of quality Native American crafts will also be on hand, as well as food vendors who will provide Native American foods and traditional festival foods such as hotdogs and shaved ice.
