Apache Jii transforms Broad Street Oct. 21

The 34th annual Apache Jii festival takes off in downtown Globe on Saturday, Oct. 21. Arts and crafts from tribal artisans from throughout the Southwest will be available. Everything from beadwork to baskets, carvings to sand paintings, paintings to photographs will be available. A full day of entertainment, arts and crafts booths and savory rounds out the excitement of Apache Jii.

Tribal royalty in full traditional dress and native entertainers ranging from flute players to crown dancers will keep the excitement alive throughout the day.

Festivities begin in front of the Center for the Arts at the corner of Broad and Oak, one block east of the US 60 highway. Opening ceremonies begin at 9 and then it’s on to a full day of entertainment, shopping and native foods.

There is no admission charge for Apache Jii; and visitors will have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Native Americans from throughout the Southwest. There is nothing like choosing a piece of jewelry or artwork after visiting with the artist who designed it.

Booths featuring jewelry, painting, beading, wood and stone carving and more are planned for the street fair. Several demonstration booths are planned as well. Entertainment, including crown dancers, basket dancers and native flute players, is planned throughout the day and no one will go hungry if they stop by the food booths which will feature everything from delicious Apache fry bread and Indian tacos to more traditional dishes like acorn stew.

Apache Jii is sponsored by the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Apache Gold Casino and Resort, Resolution Copper, APS and the city of Globe. For information on Apache Jii, call the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce at 928-425-4495.
