Native American Festival wraps up at Chehaw

Posted: Updated:

Chehaw Park gave visitors a taste of Native American culture over the weekend.

After three days Chehaw Park wrapped up the events at the Native American Festival.

Visitors experienced the history of the Native American people through dance, music and demonstrations.

"One of the neat things is coming out here and teaching our kids about the way things use to be. Now, you become use to having things instantly and it's nice to see the hard work and appreciate what it took to do simple things," Chris Baker, Visitor.

Chehaw Park gets its name from the Chehaw Indians who once settled the Albany area.

They have hosted the Native American Festival since 1990.
