I’ll report more on this later, but we’re going to go and promote it in our magazine. It is the area’s first major daylong celebration dedicated to the Nisenan.
The lineup includes traditional dancers, native artisans, basket weavers, a history of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan (all free).
At night, there’s going to be two bands for $10 per person and a “no host” bar. The design and illustration of this poster is by LeeAnn Brook.
“The Nevada County Historial Society is holding their Symposium in the Great Hall in conjunction with the rest of the event,” Judith Lowry wrote in an email. “There will be experts and historians from the State of California, U.C Davis, Sac State and UCLA. Malcolm Margolin and Heyday Press will be there.
“The California Indian Basketweavers will have a booth. The Daughters of the Golden West, Sierra Streams Institute and others will be there along with vendors including some of our finest California Indian jewelers. This is a purely California Native Culture event.”
