Last year’s festival left our artists and public out in the cold with a major ice and snow storm. This year we are going to cross our fingers and hope for the best. Daughters of the Earth, Fargo Public Library, Cultural Diversity Resources and Plains Art Museum will partner to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. The festival will cap off the celebration in the Museum’s Atrium. The festival will showcase Native American artists from Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas. This is a great opportunity to find unique handmade gifts in time for Christmas. Please contact Mary John at email@example.com to collaborate, donate or volunteer.
Free and open to the public
