Native American Heritage Month was established to commemorate the contributions, achievements, sacrifices, and cultural and historical legacy of the original inhabitants of the United States.
The Chemehuevi Indian Tribe is celebrating its Native American Heritage at its Indian Days Celebration on Friday and Saturday September 18th—19th, 2015 at Havasu Landing Resort’s – Day Beach & Campgrounds. We are inviting the general public to join us. Friday’s activities include softball games for all ages and Horseshoe tournament for cash prizes. Saturday morning kicks off with a parade then a full day of activities, games and prizes from toddlers to seniors. Enjoy the culture, food, native performances, and a host of traditional native crafts booths. For more information about obtaining a booth or any other information participating in the parade or activities contact Donner Ellsworth, Indian Days Coordinator, by phone at 760-858-4219 or by e-mail: administrator@cit-nsn.gov.
