This past Saturday, July 23, artisans specializing in Native American crafts and jewelry displayed their wares at the fifth annual Native American Artisans’ Festival at the Aquinnah Cultural Center. Festival goers could try their hands at ancient arts such as drilling wampum, or making clay pinch pots and sailor’s valentines. Jennifer Kreisberg, member of the Tuscarora American Indian tribe and part of the Native Women’s Trio Ulali, was the special guest performer.
