Throughout the weekend, there will be displays of Off-Grid systems and nomadic lifestyle workshops (solar, bus, van builds, living on the road, etc.). Golden Comanche Mardi Gras Indian Chief Juan Pardo will host a reading from his children’s book, When the Morning Comes and lead a crown making class for the youth.
