Red Earth Festival


Have you ever been to a Red Earth Festival?
You’ll learn so much while you’re there
You learn about Native Americans
And you’ll taste their delicious fare

The color of their skin resembles
The rich red earth soil
You’ll learn about ancient strides
About how they work and toil

You may even meet a talented lady
Cheryl Lockstone is her name
Her Native American art work
Has truly brought her fame

She paints pottery and flowers
So much more for you to see
If you join us you’ll find
Exactly how things used to be

Dancing, oh yes the dancing
They even have tribal competitions
You’ll see so many wonderful things
At the Native American expeditions

You’ll see the loyalty they still have
Of past generations who have died
By keeping traditions forever alive
As they show their enormous pride

So mark your calendar each year
Watch the Native American activities
Be sure to dropp by and take part in
The Red Earth Festivities!

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
