The 36th Annual Indian Market boasts an array of enjoyable activities for children and adults, including exceptional American Indian music and dance, sweet and savory Indian fry breads, delicious roasted corn and other treats, authentic handmade arts and crafts one buys directly from the artist as well as ancient technology exhibitions and demonstrations throughout the weekend.

New this year!

The event takes place on site at Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park. Integrating this event with the Museum makes it all the more special by including the Museum entrance fee (which is usually $6) and admission to both the museum and the Indian Market for just $5.

Budding Young Artists program featuring eight booths where fledgling young visual artists will display and sell their work.

The featured artist this year is Kathryn Yauney. Ms. Yauney is a graduate of Chadron State College in Nebraska and holds degrees in both History and Art. She is part Cherokee and taught at the Sioux Pine Indian Reservation in South Dakota for nine years. This influenced her to become the American Indian artist she is today. Kathryn creates unique works of art that are hand-crafted in clay and mixed media.

Enjoy traditional and contemporary American Indian music by local performing arts groups and dance performances by five-time World Hoop Dance Champion Derrick Suwaima Davis. Check out the fashion show, various demonstrations and welcome the opportunity to take a tour of the archaeological park and Museum.
