Ever try an American Indian taco made with fry bread before? Well, this weekend may be your chance.

The Denver American Indian Festival returns for its second year Saturday and Sunday at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church in Thornton. The event includes arts and crafts vendors, Native foods, as well as live music and dance.

Storyteller and singer-songwriter Red Feather Woman -- aka Rose Red Elk -- the Denver Indian Center Dancers and Native flutist Eric “Many Winds” Herrera are among the Colorado artists slated to perform.

The festival is free and open to the public.
