48th Annual Native American Day at State Capitol

Native American Day

There’s a lot to be said for carrying on traditions, learning from the past and preparing future generations for what’s ahead. But first, let’s celebrate!

California State Parks and the State Indian Museum are proud to announce a special and free 48th Annual Native American Day celebration that will take place on Friday, September 25, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm on the west steps of the State Capitol (on 10th street, between L and N Streets).

Showcasing a theme of “Water: Protecting Our Natural Resources” this year, the important event is devoted to maintaining Native culture, including stories, languages, and traditions for today and for future generations.  Guests will enjoy cultural performers, compelling guest speakers, the Tule River Color Guard, traditional games, music and dancing, and much more.

The annual day of activities is proudly sponsored by the State Native American Liaisons of California, representing various California Departments and Agencies including the State Indian Museum and California State Parks.  The Tribal sponsors are the Northern, Southern and Central California Tribal Chairmen’s Association.

Following the fun and lively event, stop by the State Indian Museum to learn and explore even more about Native culture. While the event at the State Capitol is free that day, normal Museum hours and admission prices apply for the State Indian Museum located at 2618 K Street in Sacramento.
