October means a lot of things here in southwest Colorado like fall colors, apple harvests, and the first dusting of snow on Sleeping Ute. At the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, October means CultureFest—and this year’s edition was our most successful yet!
CultureFest is our annual celebration where Crow Canyon gets to show off our beautiful campus while we learn about Native American history and culture, discuss the latest research in southwest archaeology, eat great food, participate in a silent auction, meet up with old friends, and make new friendships that we hope will last a lifetime.
This year, more attendees than ever before helped Crow Canyon to raise funds to support our array of archaeological research and educational programs.
A highlight of the event was a performance of the traditional Laguna Corn Dance by a group of young dancers from Jemez Pueblo in north-central New Mexico. You can watch the video of their performance below:
We’d like to thank all of the donors, program participants, friends, and volunteers that helped make CultureFest and all of Crow Canyon’s programs and events possible through their generous support. We couldn’t do it without your help—and we can’t wait to see everybody again in 2019!
