    The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park presents The 2nd Annual "Isaco" Southeast Native American Gathering at the park's recreated Village of Seloy on Saturday and Sunday, December 3 and 4, 2016. "Isaco" is the word for "joy" in Timucuan.

    The event honors the Timucua and all Native Americans by sharing the culture and history of the Southeastern people. There will be demonstrations of men and women's traditional Pow Wow dancing, storytelling by contemporary native interpreters, and handmade arts and crafts on sale for every budget. At dusk, there will be a Traditional Southeastern Social Stomp Dance exhibition.

    The Timucua tribe were the original residents in the St. Augustine area for centuries before the arrival of the Europeans. The Fountain of Youth offers several interactive areas and exhibits staffed by professional re-enactors and historians, including the recreated Timucuan Village of Seloy, where living-history interpreters show visitors what daily life was like for the Timucua who lived here.
