The third weekend in September welcomes the largest Native American gathering in the Southeast as more than 300 craftsmen, dancers, storytellers, living history demonstrators and others with ties to the area return to their ancestral home at Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon, Georgia. Named one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society, the celebration shares this vital piece of American history with some 20,000 guests to the monument each year, allowing new generations to understand the Native American heritage, arts, and culture first-hand through interaction and observation.
This year’s Celebration will feature many of the popular artists, dancers, and storytellers returning from past years. Events will include a Native stick ball game demonstration. Native foods such as Indian tacos, fry bread, buffalo burgers, and roasted corn will be available along with drinks, and hot dogs.
