Artist Keith LongFeather to Visit Antelope Valley Indian Museum
Keith LongFeather (Cherokee) will be the featured artist at Antelope Valley Indian Museum SHP on Saturday, December 16, 2017, between 11 AM and 4 PM. Keith makes bows, arrows, pipes, war clubs, and other art by hand using only traditional materials. He is looking forward to answering visitor questions about his culture and art.
Keith is an enrolled member of the Ecota Cherokee Tribe of Alabama. From the age of 4 until he graduated from high school, he lived with his grandmother in Waycross, Georgia. His grandmother taught him about his Cherokee heritage, including how to make bows, arrows, and track animals in the traditional way. After high school, he worked in the medical field, first in New York and later in southern California. In the 1980s, Keith began making art again, and for 15 years, he was a featured artist at Taos Indian Shop in Santa Monica.
The museum hosts an annual American Indian Celebration in October every year. The event features American Indian dancers, music, storytelling, and vendors.
