Leitchfield Native American Gathering for Father's Day

Some Leitchfield residents got an educational experience for Father's Day.

This weekend the Kentucky Native American Council held an "Honor the Father's" Native American gathering.

The purpose of the event was to educate families on the culture of Native Americans.

This was the first year this event has been held in Leitchfield.

"We've always honored our elders. The Native Americans are really heavy on that and that's why we did it on Father's Day, so we can honor the father's and the father's here now", says co-coordinator of the event.

On hand at the event were handmade crafts for everyone to see and buy.

They plan on making the "Honor the Father's" event an annual gathering to be held each Father's Day.
