Indigenous rights group and nonprofit organization Cultural Survival will celebrate 25 years of bringing indigenous art and crafts to the public with its annual bazaar in Pound Hall on Dec. 4 and 5.
Highlighting this year’s event will be Tibetan and West African food, fabric from Bali, hand-blown Guatemalan glass, African carvings, and Maasai and Navajo jewelry, among many other offerings. This year’s bazaar will also feature performances by musicians from Ecuador and Kenya on Dec. 4 from 6 to 8 p.m.
More than 50 vendors will offer their wares for sale, and a percentage of the proceeds of each sale will support Cultural Survival’s work with indigenous cultures worldwide.
The bazaar brings together the work of dozens of skilled artisans and craftspeople from around the world, while allowing Cultural Survival to spread awareness about indigenous cultures and support indigenous artisans, vendors, and organizations.
Admission to the bazaar, which runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 4, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 5, is free. For more information, visit http://www.cs.org.
