SANTA FE DAYS IN THE PARK provides our organization, the INDIGENOUS INSTITUTE OF THE AMERICAS, with the opportunity to bring our purpose, mission and vision together at our 13th annual event, March 18 & 19, 2017 in Carrollton, TX just a few miles north of Dallas, TX.
SANTA FE DAYS is a fun, family-friendly community event. Our goal is to bring our Native American Indian culture to the general public. We welcome the general public! We want to share our unique knowledge, life ways, history and worldviews. A living history lesson!
Santa Fe Days is the only ALL NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN ARTS event in North Texas. Every artist brings authentic, one of a kind, handmade/handcrafted items to our North Texas community. Most of our artists are attendees to the famous Southwest Art Market in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
So we say, “SAVE A PLANE TICKET, SPEND YOUR MONEY ON AUTHENTIC BEAUTY AT OUR EVENT!”
The artists at Santa Fe Days bring skills which have been passed down from generation to generation.
Santa Fe Days is also an opportunity for our brothers and sisters from the local and regional Native communities to bring their children to an event that focuses on spreading pride and knowledge, a place where they can bring their non-native friends to have fun doing activities and games associated with our culture.
As we grow the event, so too will be continued opportunities for cultural education, demonstrations, and other community outreach throughout the year.
