CLIFF CASTLE CASINO HOSTS NATIVE AMERICAN ARTISTS, MUSICIANS TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL INDIAN FESTIVAL

In honor of National Indian Week, Cliff Castle Casino will host a celebration of Native American culture Sept. 23.

Cliff Castle Casino's National Indian Festival will bring tribes from across the country to share their heritage with other tribes and non-Indians.

This year's festival will feature live music from 2-10 p.m. in the new Stargazer Pavilion at Cliff Castle Casino. Native American bands performing include Indigenous, Redbone, Clan/Destin, Apache Spirit and Sneezy Boys. As in previous years, the festival will also feature Native American drumming and demonstrations of Native crafts including silversmithing, basket and rug weaving, pottery making and kachina carving. Native foods also will be available to sample.

Also special to this year's festival will be the opening celebration, a special recognition ceremony at 11 a.m. honoring Arizona Living Treasures — tribal elders recognized by the state for their innovative and impressive contributions to the arts.

"The National Indian Festival is one of our most exciting events of the year," said Tina Lentz, marketing director for Cliff Castle Casino. "It's an opportunity for community members to have a great time and get to know their neighbors while appreciating and celebrating the culture of the Yavapai-Apache Nation and all Native Americans."

The Arizona Living Treasures recognition ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. at the Stargazer Pavilion. Concert gates open at 1 p.m. and bands will perform from 2-10 p.m. Tickets for the concert can be purchased at the Castle Club for $15.
