Heard is the Word

Instead of reveling in your own traditions this holiday season – like arguing at the dinner table, getting plastered in front of your grandparents, and banging a stranger on New Years Eve – you could try immersing yourself in the traditions of those who inhabited this country before Santa became an obese white dude.

Holidays at the Heard, a festival of Southwestern and American Indian culture, offers different festivities each day, including artist demonstrations, music, dance performances, and book signings. And yes, there will be fry bread.
