American Indian Arts Celebration

It’s short notice, we know, but if you are in South Florida and can get there, you may find the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s 9th Annual American Indian Arts Festival worth a visit. It opened yesterday and continues through Sunday, November 12 at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation. The hours are 10 AM to 5 PM. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for Seniors (55 or older) and kids (6 to 12 years) Youngsters under 6 are free.

Principal access to Big Cypress Reservation is via Rattlesnake Road, which runs north from I-75 (Alligator Alley) at the Miccosukkee exit west of Fort Lauderdale. For more information and alternate directions, call 863-902-1113.

Incidentally, the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is worth a day trip in its own right. It is quite informative and very well done. This show is held every year around this time so you might want to put a tag on your calendar to start looking for it in October next year. We also will try to be more attentive and timely for the 10th annual event in 2007.
