Native American Eagle Dances
Celebrate Native American Month and participate in native culture on Saturday, November 28
Experience entertaining and educational mini-workshops, highlighting Native American Eagle and Hoop Dances, on Saturday, November 28, 2020, at Chirp Nature Center. The interactive workshops spotlight native culture, the relationship between Native Peoples and Nature, and include traditional winter dance performances in native regalia.
The 3 free outdoor workshops will be held at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and will follow COVID-19 prevention protocols, including sanitizing, social distancing, and face masking.
The workshops feature native performers Eric Runningpath and Dr. Laura Williams, both of whom participated as cultural ambassadors in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Mr. Runningpath is an award-winning Navajo-Yaqui dancer who has performed in many movies, as well as internationally, and is former Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations. Dr. Williams is a Juaneno-Acjachemen physician fellowship-trained in multiculturalism related to the health and wellness of Indigenous People.
