HAMPTON, Va.— The Hampton History Museum host the 7th Annual Hampton Heritage Day festival commemorating the Native


American, European and African


cultures that shaped the city’s early history on Saturday, May 18, 10 am - 6 pm, in Mill Point Park, Downtown Hampton.


Sponsored by the National Park Service


and the Hampton 2019 Commemorative Commission, the event includes traditional music, dance, storytelling and presentations that take place throughout the day, as well as hands-on family


activities, cultural


displays and demonstrations, glass-blowing, blacksmithing, pottery and other heritage arts, crafts and more. Food trucks and vendors of traditional clothing, jewelry, soaps and lotions join the event this year.


had


In the past this family friendly event been held in conjunction with the


International Children’s Festival. Over the years, Heritage Day has grown to include more participants, and the April date had conflicted with major Pow Wows limiting Native American participation


in Heritage


Day. It is now being held as a separate event. “It is significant that we have four Native


American tribes represented at Heritage Day this year, along with the Minnesota-based Native Pride Dancers. We want to expand the story of what life was like for the people who were here before Europeans arrived,” says Hampton History Museum executive director Luci Cochran. “Our goal is to honor those who came before us and focus learning from each other in a spirit of healing. We believe it is a great day if people gain understanding of who we are from our past and each other so that we walk away knowing more about our neighbors, ourselves and our community.” HAMPTON FESTIVAL PAGE 10
