Native American Day

A dance exhibition, talks by Native American groups and free traditional meal are on tap for The Native American Celebration Day on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Mid-America All-Indian Center.

The free event runs from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 

One featured group, the Wounded Knee Survivors Run group, will speak starting at 1 p.m. about the challenges of living on a Lakota reservation versus living in an urban environment. The meal will be served starting at noon, while supplies last.

The center is also partnering with public television station KPTS to promote a new four-part documentary, Native America, which covers various aspects of the history and culture of indigenous peoples from Canada to Peru. The center will hold a screening of the first episode at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, with light refreshments provided. Subsequent episodes air at 8 p.m. on Oct. 23, Oct. 30 and Nov. 13.
