At the Autry

On November 3rd and 4th, we will be at the Gene Autry Museum for the Autry’s annual Marketplace, the largest American Indian arts market. More than 160 artists will be there showing their wares, as well as artist demonstrations, food, music, and dance.

Says Chief Cerda; “After 3 years, we are back at the Autry museum. We are happy to be back to the Museum.”

The Ohlone Humaya Dancers will be dancing there in the afternoon.
