American Indian Arts Festival: Autry Museum
On June 8-9, 2024, the Autry hosts its annual American Indian Arts Festival with pow-wow dancing, drumming, food and Native artworks. Los Angeles is home to the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe and an urban population of Native people from over 200 tribes across North America.

Los Angeles County has the highest population of Native Americans and Alaska Natives than any other county in the United States. AIAF invites Native and non-Native people to share knowledge and celebrate Native American culture at a multi-tribal event.
With over 150 elite artists, AIAF showcases some of the best contemporary and traditional Native artwork, including jewelry, Pueblo pottery, sculpture, basketry and beadwork. The Autry encourages guests to buy art in a space where purchasing Native art is an opportunity for collectors to directly support Native American artists.
Admission to the museum is included with the ticket price, where you will find works on display that explore the diversity and excellence of Native American artwork from artists like Cara Romero (Chemehuevi), Harry Fonseca (Nisenan Maidu), River Garza (Tongva) and many more.
