About 10,000 people attended the 2014 Multicultural Indian Event, an annual festival held in May and sponsored by the Lawrence County Native American Student Club. Indian heritage is kept alive in crafts, music, dance, ceremony, and camaraderie. Native crafts and customs came alive through actual demonstrations that included flint-knapping, basket weaving, finger-weaving, gorget carving, woodcarving, blacksmithing, pottery production, cornhusk doll making, Native American foods display, weaponry displays, Native American dancing and music.
