Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival

Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival

Second weekend in June
One of the largest such events in the country, the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival is held in Oklahoma City and draws participants from more than 150 American Indian tribes. The three-day festival features arts and crafts, dancing, and parades.
The name Oklahoma means "red people," being derived from two Choctaw words, okla, meaning "people," and humma, meaning "red." There are 35 tribes with tribal councils now living in Oklahoma. Their population is more than 175,000, the second largest of any state in the nation.
