Native Americans and people from about 20 countries including Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Ireland, the U.K., Italy, China, India and the Philippines showed their culture and customs through art, costumes, food and pictures to hundreds of Air Force base employees.
The festival started at 11:00 am. Eleven local Falun Gong practitioners participated at the Falun Gong booth. A eight-year-old girl and her eleven-year-old sister demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises together with four other practitioners. Another practitioner introduced how the practice of Falun Gong has been spread in more than eighty countries as a cultivation system.
The audience rewarded the practitioners with warm applause. Some were amazed at the little sisters' meditation. An American Indian said, "Very powerful!" More people told the Falun Gong practitioners, "You did great!"
On behalf of the Air Force base, a colonel presented a badge to every Falun Gong practitioner for their outstanding performance and for sharing the beauty of Chinese culture. The sponsor of the event had heard about Falun Dafa from the newspaper and decided to invite Falun Gong practitioners to this festival to represent the Chinese culture.
