Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home, they featured the preparation of great quantities of ceremonial food, the wearing of many layers of colorful clothing adorned with silver, and the recounting of traditional tribal jokes and stories.

Explanation:
-----------------
(A) Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home, they featured ---> 'they featured' is incorrect.

(B) Festivals were held in Aho, a Kiowa matriarch’s home, which featured ---> ‘Aho’ is a person not the name of a home. Discard it.

(C) Aho, who was a Kiowa matriarch in her home, held festivals featuring ---> Changes the meaning. Looks like she was considered a matriarch at home and something else outside.

(D) In her home, Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals that featured ---> Correct.

(E) Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home that featured ---> ‘that featured’ refers to ‘home’, which is incorrect. Discard it.
-----------------

My choice is option D.

It doesn't take much of an effort to underline SC questions.
