Native Americans share their culture at Ocmulgee Indian Celebration

Native Alaskans share culture in Macon

Native Americans from across the country traveled to Macon for the 25th Annual Ocmulgee Indian Celebration.

Native people told stories, danced, and sang for hundreds of visitors at the Ocmulgee National Monument. 

One group traveled thousands of miles to share their culture. The native Alaskans performed and showed off how they compete in Arctic games. 

Steven Alvarez came with the group and hopes people here in Central Georgia have a greater appreciation for Alaska and its eleven distinct native cultures. 

"Not everybody in Alaska is an Eskimo, and we're still here, thriving and practicing our traditions," said Alvarez. 

The celebration continues Sunday, September 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
