The celebration of National American Indian Heritage Month has happened every November since a resolution was signed in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush.  The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people.  We will celebrate Native American Heritage Month by hosting several family events for our students and their families to enjoy.  Remember, all events hosted by Huntsville City Schools NAIE Program are FREE.

This event will take place at Burritt on the Mountain.

*This event is free, but you must have a ticket from the Native American & Indian Edcuation office.*

Burritt's Folklife Festival will showcase craftspeople, artists, and presenters who will share their knowledge about the traditions, skills, handicrafts, and arts of our region during the 1800s and early 1900s.  Come hear traditional music and watch demonstrators as they show you how our ancestors worked, lived, and created art.  Skills that will be demonstrated may include: blacksmithing, flint knapping, Native American flute making and playing, spinning, quilting, leather tanning, jewelry making, open hearth cooking, and much, much more.
