Visitors will learn about the buffalo art featured on the kites, have an opportunity create their own kite and fly it over the buffalo jump, and also make a traditional Native American game piece and cattail doll. Food trucks will be present for the event, along with Native American artists and vendors who will be displaying and selling their crafts.
