Native American Weekend

Native American Weekend

November 23 - 25, 2018

Native Americans celebrate this period of long nights and short days, when the air is cool, crisp and feels clean . It is a time of giving thanks for abundance that has been gathered and stored for the winter. Explore the symbols of this time : west wind , fire, the owl, obsidian , mistletoe and the color gold. In celebration of Native American month , learn from special guests Jeannie 'E Nah Dah' Cranford and Michael 'Thunder Dancer Sees the Ground' Cranford, who are of Cherokee descent, about the vibrant traditions of Native Americans . This weekend includes storytelling , dance and ceremonial dress presentations as well as hands on workshops .
