QUINCY (WGEM) - Hundreds of people will celebrate Native American heritage in Quincy this weekend.

Great River Eagle Days is Saturday and Sunday at the Oakley-Lindsay Center at 3rd and York.

More than 30 Native American vendors and food booths will be on hand both days.

Live birds of prey, including an eagle, will also be on display.

Standing Bear Council President Leslie Haslem said this event is important for all Americans.

“A lot of people think the Native Americans are gone and they’re not. We’re coming back stronger than ever and we are really pushing to keep our traditions alive just like anybody else keeps their traditions alive as much as they can,” Haslem said. “A lot is being lost with everyone.”

Saturday’s events go from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday’s go from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission is $5 for everyone 10 and older, and $3 for those over 60.
