IN THE SPIRIT Northwest Native Arts Festival
August 11, 12:00-7:00 PM
Jointly hosted by Washington State History Museum and Tacoma Art Museum
FREE community festival
The FREE festival
and arts market is a community favorite! Shop for handmade Native arts and meet the artists. Enjoy song, dance, music, food, and a runway fashion show featuring Native designers. See Native art exhibitions.
Don't miss a performance by the band Khu.éex’
(pronounced koo-eex), co-founded by artist and musician Preston Singletary
who plays bass in the band. Khu.éex’ translates to “Potlatch” in the Tlingit language. The band shares culture, stories, and music through contemporary interpretations focused on empowering others. The Seattle Times
(Paul de Barros) described Khu.éex’
as "...mixing Native American song and spoken word with atmospheric, visionary jazz improvisation in a way that recalls the ecstatic ’70s jazz-funk work of groups like Weather Report or Carlos Santana."
Admission to both museums and the festival is FREE. See InTheSpiritArts.org for a schedule of events.
