Several dance groups will be in the center of the street festival throughout the day, including the Yellow Bird Apache dancers and the Dine’tah Navajo dancers. Crown dancers also will be featured, along with flute players and musicians throughout the day.

Booths featuring jewelry, painting, beading, wood and stone carving and more are planned for the street fair.

There is no admission charge for Apache Jii, an event originally started as a thank you to the San Carlos Apache Nation, which borders Globe to the east. The festival offers a unique chance for visitors to talk one-on-one with Native Americans from throughout the Southwest, making this an opportunity to purchase a very personal piece gift or art piece. There is nothing like choosing a work after visiting with the artist who designed it.

Chat with colorfully-dressed tribal royalty from throughout the Southwest and enjoy their educational and entertaining presentations in the central performance area.

Apache Jii is hosted by the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Apache Gold Casino and Resort, APS, Resolution Copper, Salt River Project and the city of Globe.
