American Indian Heritage Celebration 

When: Sat., Nov. 20, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. 2010

North Carolina has the largest American Indian population east of the Mississippi; its achievements and influences on our culture are immeasurable. Celebrate these contributions at the museum's largest annual showcase, where visitors are likely to see everything from native dances to wigwams. Guests are invited to interact directly with the culture by signing up for flute and instrument workshops, playing traditional games such as corncob darts, and making arts and crafts items such as dream catchers. A variety of traditional American Indian foods will be sold, including fried bread, sweet potato fries, beef stew, buffalo burgers and fried pies. The outdoor festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; at 5 p.m.; admission is free. —Lauren Shute
