Join us on Saturday, July 30, 2016 from 1 until 5 p.m. at Father Hennepin Bluffs Park forOwámni: Falling Water Festival, a celebration of indigenous Minnesota cultures. Owámni is what the Dakota called the area at St. Anthony Falls. It means, “whirling or falling water” in the Dakota language, making it an appropriate name for this festival along the Mississippi River.

This free, family-friendly event, co-presented by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the St Anthony Falls Heritage Board, celebrates indigenous Minnesota culture with music, art, food, and more!

Enjoy the many event offerings with the opportunity to your hand at lacrosse; view and learn more about artifacts from the collection of the Minnesota History Center’s collection; picnic in the park with Native foods from Dream of Wild Health and other food vendors, and watch an amazing drum performance courtesy of the Twin Cities Based RedBone Singers.The music portion of the festival will be highlighted by a performance from nationally known band Indigenous.
