Young American Indian Dancer
Johnson County Community College's (JCCC) Center for American Indian Studies will host a cultural event for those interested in celebrating and immersing themselves in American Indian art and history.
The day will feature demonstrations of traditional hand games, as well as an arts and crafts market showcasing paintings, sculptures, carvings, clothing, beadwork and silver and turquoise jewelry. There will also be a screening of "Keepers of the Game," a film about the origins of lacrosse.
There will be workshops demonstrating how to make your own drum, moccasins or medicine wheel. You can also purchase traditional soup and bread or peruse the offerings of a silent auction benefiting the American Indian Health Research & Education Alliance (AIHREA).
The evening will close with a performance at 7:00 p.m. by American Indian dancers and musicians from multiple tribal nations in full dance regalia. Dancers will perform a variety of contemporary and traditional dances.
Although admission is free, workshops and entrance to the dance have fees.
