REDDING, Calif. - The Shasta Historical Society presented Indigenous People's History Days on Friday and Saturday.

Action News Now reporter Elizabeth Zelidon captured video of the event on Saturday out in front of the Cascade Theatre, where the historical society held their 3rd annual street fair with indigenous vendors.

On Friday the Cascade was used for a special documentary screening of the film, "Tending the Wild."

Organizers say these events are a way to keep the culture alive and acknowledge their native homeland in Shasta County.

Native community advocate Kenwa Kravitz said they had a wonderful turnout, with many people coming and going throughout the day.

The event continued throughout the evening in the Atrium where chef Vince Medina served tastings of indigenous foods.
