COLORADO’S LARGEST AUTHENTIC AND JURIED AMERICAN INDIAN ART SHOW RETURNS FOR ITS 19TH YEAR,

COURTESY OF TESORO CULTURAL CENTER

Annual Indian Market & Powwow Features Nationally Acclaimed Indian Artists for Weekend-Long Cultural Celebration

Tesoro Cultural Center will welcome back the beloved Indian Market & Powwow in its 19th year on Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2, on the grounds of Colorado’s iconic restaurant, The Fort. The event offers free and ample parking, runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, and admission – just $10 per person, free for children 12 and under – benefits Tesoro’s ongoing educational programs and initiatives.

Tesoro Cultural Center’s Indian Market & Powwow is a yearly tribute to the American Indian tribes of the past who shaped the cultural community of Bent’s Old Fort (an important fur trading post that operated along the famous Santa Fe Trail in the 1830s and 1840s), as well as those of the present and future.

The festivities will kick off with a Tesoro Member-exclusive Meet the Artists Patron Party on Friday, May 31, at 6 p.m. at The Fort (19192 Hwy. 8, Morrison). Member tickets to this event are $20 per person. Guests will have the first opportunity to purchase award-winning art, meet the artists, and enjoy live music and entertainment. Hearty hors d’oeuvres, courtesy of The Fort, will be provided and a cash bar is available. To attend, one must be a Tesoro Member; join online today and purchase tickets at TesoroCulturalCenter.org/Membership.

On Saturday and Sunday, Colorado’s largest authentic and juried American Indian art show will take place, featuring nationally acclaimed Indian artists in a variety of mediums, including pottery, sculpture, painting, photography, and jewelry. Returning artists include Pahponee (Kickapoo and Potawatomi), Eddie Morrison (Cherokee), Andy Marion (Diné), Jimmie Harrison (Diné), Jesse T. Hummingbird (Cherokee) and Carol Snow (Seneca), among others. The event also includes a two-day contest Powwow with participation from more than 40 Indian Nations. The famous Red Spirit Singers will be joining the Powwow festivities this year.

Alongside celebrations of art, dance, and cultural heritage, Tesoro’s Indian Market & Powwow honors outstanding American Indian Veterans each year with an intimate, engaging ceremony to thank them for their service. This year’s honoree is Sgt. 1st Class Cindy Littlefeather (Diné) of the Mountain Cove Clan and born for the Sleepy Rock people; Sgt. Littlefeather’s maternal clan is of the Towering House and her paternal clan is of the Bitter Water. From Lake Valley, N.M., Sgt. Littlefeather is a member of the Sister Nations Color Guard and is serving on active duty with the Colorado Army National Guard, and has been for nearly 25 years. She will be honored on Saturday, June 1, during the Indian Market & Powwow.

Concessions will be available and provided by Tocabe and The Fort. All programming supports Tesoro’s year-round mission of preserving the artistic treasures of our American past and making available to the community.
