Did you know that Quindaro is a Wyandot Indian word (that translates as "bundle of sticks" but is taken to mean "in union there is strength")? Or that the Osage Trail once ran through the area that is now the intersection of 31st Street and Harrison? Native American contributions to the area's cultural heritage came along way before barbecue and jazz. Cele­brate them today at the Harvest Moon American Indian Festival, where organizers hope to "break Pow Wow stereotypes" and "introduce the arts community to contemporary Native performers" (according to their website). Hear music by flautist Bill Miller and singer Joane Shenandoah (both are Grammy-winners); Indigenous, a Nakota Nation rock group from South Dakota; and several other local artists. The festival runs from noon to 10 p.m. at the intersection of 31st Street and Troost and also features art, food and ceremonial dance. Proceeds benefit the White Buffalo Scholarship Fund and the Historic Osage Pergola Park Project. Tickets cost $15. For more information, see harvestmoonamericanindianfestival.com.
