The Annual American Indian Festival and Concerts was held at the Rye Home United Methodist Church on this past Saturday and Sunday, June 9th & 10th 2018.

There were American Indian vendors showcasing their beautiful handmade, authentic Indian jewelry and other items. There were also local vendors with their many wonderful handcrafted items of their own designs and a concession serving, among other items, delicious Indian fry bread tacos.

The American Indian Festival was started 10 years ago by the late Susie Aikman as an Outreach Ministry of the Committee on Native American Ministries (CONAM) of the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church of which she was Chairperson.

Helen Darrow co-chairperson of the Festival said, I had just joined the (CONAM)

Committee and Suzie had asked me to help organize an American Indian Festival. I asked the Rye Home UMC, of which I am a member, if they would help and they did by donating for the original startup expense.
