The History Museum and Tacoma Art Museum will partner to host IN THE SPIRIT Northwest Native Festival in mid-August. This indoor/outdoor celebration of Native cultures encompasses a day of dancing, drumming, singing, shopping, and a Native designer runway fashion show, with booth space for vendors in and around both museums. The festival is open to the public free of charge and provides an opportunity to connect with a diverse group of Native artists selling a wide range of exquisite work in all price ranges.
