FLAGSTAFF -- During the summer of 1983, the first Native American Festival of Arts & Culture sprouted up in Flagstaff at the Coconino Center for the Arts. The festival was well celebrated into the late '90s by the local community, Native American artists, international art collectors and people throughout the country. The festival is known to have launched the careers of many successful native artists.
