Held at Stone Mountain Park’s historic Antebellum Plantation, the event showcases Native American culture through dance, music, authentic craft demonstrations, cooking traditions, storytelling, wildlife presentations and more.

•  Experience the central role of dance in native culture as Native Americans from across the U.S. and central America compete in intertribal dance and drum competitions. 

•  Learn about primitive skills such as flint-knapping, bow making, fire starting, open fire cooking and pottery.  Crawl inside a tipi and other traditional native dwellings.  Parents and kids participate in interactive experiences such as an East meets West Encampment comparing and contrasting the lifestyle of Southeastern and Plains Indians.

•  Find that one-of-a-kind holiday gift in the artists' marketplace, where world-renowned Native and Native-inspired artists and crafters demonstrate their skills and offer hand-crafted items for sale.
