OVERTON, Nevada – Cultures live and dance during Native American Heritage month at Lost City Museum. On Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 10 am to 4 pm, join us to learn more about beliefs, values, and traditions of Native American peoples.

 This special yearly event brings visitors to the museum to celebrate Native American Heritage month. This year, the US Air Force and Lost City Museum are partnering to bring more performers to the annual celebration of Native American Day. Throughout the day, there will be seven Native American cultural performances, including dances, stories, drumming, and more.

 “This is a great family event,” said Director Mary Beth Timm. “Admission is only $5 for adults, but museum members and children get in free. We are really excited that the US Air Force can sponsor the performances for the public.”

 Lost City Museum is hosting more aspects of native cultures. Hand-made items and jewelry will be on sale directly from Native artisans. Authentic Navajo fry bread and Indian tacos will be available for purchase.

 Museum admission ($5) includes the event and gallery viewing. Lost City Museum was built by the National Park Service in 1935 to exhibit artifacts excavated from Pueblo Grande de Nevada. Currently, the museum educates the public about Ancestral Puebloan artifacts and more recent Native American artistry such as Paiute basketry.

 The Lost City Museum actively engages people in understanding and celebrating Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. It is one of seven museums managed by the Nevada Division of Museums and History, an agency of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, it is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
