Just a reminder that California is hosting our Annual Honored Elders Day. It was originally scheduled (as always) for the first Saturday in June, but was unfortunately rained out.
This year the rescheduled date is:
Saturday, September 22, 2011
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
on the South Steps of the California State Capitol
near 11th and N Streets
The day will include opening ceremonies, singing and dance, traditional food, and many vendors with native goods.
I think all people have traditions of honoring elders and this day is set aside to honor all elders, but especially our Native American elders, who share their wisdom and humility with us.
The annual Honored Elders Day is usually held at the California State Indian Museum at 2618 K Street in Sacramento.
The California State Indian Museum is on the grounds of Sutter’s Fort which encompasses more than 2 square blocks in Sacramento.
Together the fort and the museum are a California State Historic Park and have made a great site for this annual gathering. It is nice to have the state set a rescheduled date and host us at the State Capitol.
See my prior posts on this event and on Sutter’s Fort.
This is a family friendly event and children really enjoy themselves.
See you there!!
