This year’s 30th annual Apache Jii Festival took place on Oct. 19. There was a great turnout, including locals as well as out-of-towners from the likes of White Mountain and beyond. Performers like Dineh Tah came from as far as Albuquerque, New Mexico.
“It’s an honor to be here to share our traditions and blessings with the people, especially the Apaches,” said Shawn Price of Dineh Tah. “This is about bringing our knowledge and blessings here.”
We included some of our favorite photos from this year’s festival in the photo gallery below. You can find more photos in our next print issue, on the Society Page.
