Join us for a celebration of Crow culture!
Members of the Apsáalooke Crow Nation, along with their horses, will dress in full regalia for a parade on The Brinton grounds! Following the parade, Brinton Museum American Indian Advisory Council member Mardell Hogan Plainfeather will give a presentation about this event in the Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery.
The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 17, and is FREE and OPEN to the public.
“When the camp is on the move in the summer, this tribe presents a gay and lively appearance, more so perhaps than any other. On these occasions both men and women dress in their best clothes. Their numerous horses are decked out with highly ornamented saddles and bridges of their own making, scarlet collars and housings with feathers on their horse’s heads and tails.” Edwin Thompson Denig, Five Tribes of the Upper Missouri.
