Since its founding in 1946, ý has always been firmly rooted in respect for and reverence of Native American arts and culture. Each summer, ý’ Native American Arts Center produces and hosts the annual Native American Arts Festival Week, designed to enhance and add depth to the Summer Program workshop experience. The week-long festival provides a provocative learning experience by bringing together distinguished artists, scholars, and cultural specialists to present performances, demonstrations, films, exhibitions, showcases, and the popular Michael Kabotie Lecture Series.

Join us for a lunchtime lecture featuring a fully curated traditional Native Foods meal exploring intersections of culinary storytelling, prepared by Wendy Weston (Diné). Our guest speaker is artist, storyteller and dancer Chuna McIntyre (Yup’ik) who will present traditional Yup’ik dance and song accompanied by percussion on a hand drum. Chuna will illustrate and share the importance of storytelling to the Yup’ik worldview.
