Huajatolla Heritage Festival is happening June 8-9th, 2019 in La Veta, Colorado - now in its second year! The cultural extravaganza is an outgrowth of the Huajatolla Heritage Foundation, a new, volunteer-driven group dedicated to honoring and sharing the Native and Hispano cultures of southern Colorado’s Cuchara Valley. The free festival takes place this summer at the Francisco Fort Museum in La Veta, and will host an array of artisans, vendors, musicians, performers, food and educational opportunities. Huajatolla Heritage Foundation was awarded an Arts in Society grant for their work in 2018.
Colorado’s 14th annual Indigenous Film & Arts Festival takes place October 4-10 in Denver. Mervyn L. Tano, President, International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management reflects on this years theme, Celebrating the Creative Spirit. The festival was supported in part this year by a grant from Arts in Society.
