Additional Information

We at the Native American Awareness Committee are Rebuilding & Recovering following a flood and the loss of our founder/event coordinator "Mac" Spotted Horse. In True Native Spirit we are honoring his memory by continuing his dream of promoting and educating Native American Culture to Rockford and the surrounding areas.

We are returning to Beattie Park for our 24th year to host the Honoring The Mounds Gathering, honoring Native American culture and promoting awareness of the significance of the Native Burial Mounds located at Beattie Park.

As always, this family-friendly event is FREE and open to the public. There will be drumming, dancing, live demonstratons, children's arts and crafts, vendors, food, raffles and much more. Come join us to celebrate Rockford's rich Native American culture, plast and present!
