Tucson Meet Yourself A Folklife Festival October 13, 2013
This past weekend Tucson, Arizona, held its annual Tucson Meet Yourself Festival. This festival is the "annual celebration of the living traditional arts of Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico's diverse ethnic and folk communities." Tara and I were able to attend the festival on Sunday. We watched performances on four different stages and ate food from many different cultures. What also made the festival fantastic were the artisan booths.We saw pottery from the Navajo nation, Ukranian pottery, Navajo rugs and cowboy boots. On this blog I have included pictures from the performances of POW WOW 101, Filipino American Sampagay, Siva Maia Polynesian Dancers, Aztec Dance of Central Mexico and Awen Rising (an Early Celtic Folk group). Next year I hope to go to all three days of the festival.
