Indian Museum hosts artist Nadiya Littlewarrior


On March 9 and 10

California State Park’s Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park (SHP), 15701 East Avenue M, will host internationally recognized gourd artist Nadiya Littlewarrior (Potawatomi/Cherokee) on March 9 and 10. Nadiya, who founded her Spirit Vessels Studio in 1993, will share her art with museum visitors and answer questions.

Regarding her gourds, Nadiya says, “They are Spirit Vessels to me because The Creator makes the Gourd People and puts their spirit in them, and I get to dress them with regalia.” 

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $ 3 for adults. Children under 12 years are admitted free.

The Antelope Valley Indian Museum exhibits more than 4,000 objects created by the American Indian peoples of southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico. Visitors also enjoy the nature trail, gift shop, and picnic area.

Pets are not allowed. For more information, call the museum at (661) 946-3055 (711 TTY relay service), or visit Follow on Facebook at
