Since its founding in 1946, Idyllwild Arts has always been firmly rooted in respect for and reverence of Native American arts and culture. Each summer, Idyllwild Arts’ Native American Arts Center produces and hosts the annual Native American Arts Festival Week, designed to enhance and add depth to the Summer Program workshop experience. The week-long festival provides a provocative learning experience by bringing together distinguished artists, scholars, and cultural specialists to present performances, demonstrations, films, exhibitions, showcases, and the popular Michael Kabotie Lecture Series.

Join us as we wrap up Native American Arts Festival Week with a Native American Arts Marketplace and mini book fair! This family friendly-event will have hands-on activities for all ages, Native Foods Taste Testing, food stands, live cultural dances and presentations, and more. We are pleased to welcome Bird Singing groups from all over the southwest in this educational celebration of the legacy of Bird Singing. This will wrap up at 12 am midnight, a nod to the traditional time of day when Bird Singing takes place. The honored guest and host of this year’s Welcoming Home the Birds is the chairman of the Santa Rosa Cahuilla tribe, Steven Estrada (Cahuilla).

  • Marketplace/performances and Book fair | 3:00pm – 8:00pm
