The drums say it's the Native American Festival

Posted: Updated:

You may hear drumming coming from Chehaw this weekend. It's the sounds of the Native American Festival.

Friday was school day and children from as far as Grady and Ben Hill Counties got a chance to make music and dance with the Aztec Dancers.

Students were taught about the different musical instruments and shown how the Indians may have danced to the beat.

There will be a lot of different demonstrations for visitors to see this weekend. 

"We have the creek round house and the creek encampment set up some teepees set up talking about people out west and artisans that are talking about making the pottery, they're actually firing the pottery in the ground, chipping arrowheads out of flint," said Chehaw Natural Resource Director Ben Kirkland.

The event is in the zoo. Your admission to the park and zoo also gets you in to see the Native American Festival.

The shows runs Saturday between 9:30 AM and 6:00 PM and Sunday from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
