The Festival of Native Arts will be canceled this year due to health concerns around the coronavirus. After careful consideration and lengthy discussion, this decision was not made lightly; it was made with the health and safety of our Elders and Rural communities in mind. Thank you for your understanding and for all of the volunteers and sponsors who have contributed to this year’s event.
