Waterfront Partnership’s “Baltimore by Baltimore” waterfront music and maker series is back this Saturday, this time with a celebration of Native American cultures.

Every first Saturday until November, a different Baltimore producer hosts festivities to connect the city to diverse cultures while experiencing local “music, makers, and munchies.”

August’s event is produced by Keith Colston of Native America’s Protectors, LLC, a group of Native American consultants. The organization uses workshops and visual presentations to educate and inform non-Natives on American Indian history and what their cultures mean to them. 

Attendees can learn how to Native hoop dance and enjoy performances by Native America’s Protectors dancers, Native American drum group Northern Boys, and DJ Tynce. 

“The opportunity Waterfront Partnership has provided is historic,” Colston said in a statement. “To highlight the cultural footprint of Native Americans in Baltimore, as well as to bring forth the common characteristics we share with other ethnicities in the city, is priceless. We are not just people of color… we are people of culture.”

Baltimore-based vendors will be available for food, drinks, crafts, and product purchases. 

The festivities will take place Saturday, Aug. 6, from noon to 8 p.m. at the Inner Harbor Amphitheater.   

Waterfront Partnership hopes to attract more visitors to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor with the monthly festivals.

“Through this series, Waterfront Partnership seeks to revive the heartbeat of the Inner Harbor and create experiences for Baltimore, by Baltimore,” Waterfront Partnership said in a press release.
