Come to a local First Nation gathering right here at Northern Delights, 7091 Hwy. 3 on Wednesday, Oct 18 from 7 to 9 PM. The occasion is The Wintu Educational and Cultural Council’s presentation with drumming and singing, story telling, a local artifacts display, a questions and answers session, and an outlining of projects they are working on, to make this a better place for us all.
The Wintu Nation extends almost to the California/Oregon border and southward almost to Sacramento, westward toward the coast, and east including Shasta Lake, which before damning was the site of several native villages, as was Trinity Lake. About a half dozen bands compose this nation, which has lived and stewarded this place for thousands of years. One of these bans is the Nor El Muk on whose lands we now reside.
So come ready to sing with the drum, ask questions and bring comments. One of the projects to be discussed is their Natural Bridge effort in consort with the USFS to clean and restore areas there that have been desecrated with graffiti and vandalism. Learn why this spectacular natural area has long bee revered by ancient residents of this area.
All people of good will are welcome to this free event
Donations for the Council’s work will be accepted and appreciated.
