Do you have a field with grasses, flower heads or seed pods, woods filled with interesting tree stumps or logs, dried hydrangea blossoms?  

We are collecting these and other natural materials to make the Clarke County Fairgrounds beautiful for our Native American fall celebration.

These materials will supplement the pumpkins, gourds, hay bales and corn stalks to make the grounds complement our vision of celebrating the harvest.

For the first  Gathering we received wonderful complements on the all-natural decorations with sprays of evergreen boughs, arrangements of dried flowers arranged in bark baskets, twists of honeysuckle vines intertwined with sumac and teasel...

We are very grateful to our decorating committee headed by Anne Rose a cadre of volunteers.  Join us?

​     As a member of the “Apsaalooke Nation”, Supaman makes his home on the Crow reservation in Montana. “Supaman” Is Christian Takes Gun Parrish, a Native American dancer and innovative hip hop artist who has dedicated his life to empowering and spreading a message of hope through culture and music.
     He has been the recipient of the Nammy “Native American Music Award”, “North American Indigenous Image Award”, and  7 “Tunney Awards”. He recently was awarded  The Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Award in Canada for best video and was voted MTV’s new Artist of the Week!
     His latest video’s titled “Prayer Loop Song” and “Why” both have gone viral and have received over 2 million views on youtube and facebook which has put him in high demand touring extensively throughout the U.S.A and internationally.
     He has performed for Google at the Google headquarters in San Francisco and got to dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City. He recently was asked to audition for America’s Got Talent and the Broadway play Hamilton.  
     Christian’s presentation combines Native American culture and urban hip hop culture which dazzles audiences and captivates listeners. For this he has gained the respect of his culture and generation. The communicative talent along with the compassion that exudes from his music allows him to connect with people from all walks of life.
​     His uncanny ability to motivate, encourage, and inspire through dance, and hip hop music keeps him at the forefront among his contemporaries. 
"I strive to inspire & motivate while honoring the generations who've come before me through art, culture and design. My goal is to light up the darkness by igniting the fire for positive change in all of us through music and visual medicine. May we unite as human beings in peace, love, respect and honor"!  -- Christian Takes Gun Parrish "Supaman"​
