PERRYSBURG - The Black Swamp InterTribal Foundation will host its 11th annual Woodland Indian Celebration "They Walked Before Us," Saturday and Sunday at the Buttonwood Park/Betty C. Black Recreation Area on Hull Prairie Road.
The park is one mile west of Fort Meigs along the Maumee River.
Among the attractions this year is Douglas Blue Feather, a Cherokee from Blue Springs, who is a multiple-award wining Native American flutist.
There will be a children's tent with Native American arts and crafts, a Wildlife Tent with American birds of prey and an Indian Village with lacrosse.
Drums will be by SouthEastern WaterSpider and the Southern Singers of Ohio.
Members of SouthEastern WaterSpider are true South Eastern Peoples with members of the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Lumbee, Shawnee as well as North East Susquehanna Indian Tribes.
The SouthEastern WaterSpider Drum sings and plays authentic Native American music and instruments. The group performs songs learned from their elders as well as composing songs approved by their elders and appropriate to the Native American culture.
Several thousand people attend the event, which is held rain or shine.
Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to dusk and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for senior citizens age 60 and older and $2 for children ages 5-11. There is no charge for children four and under.
