Annual Gathering Of Honored Elders—June 2, 2012

If you are in (or will be visiting) California, please attend the 44th Honored Elders Day.  This event is still often called the 44th Annual Native American Day, but we welcome elders and families of all nationalities.

Native Americans, as well as so many other nationalities, have a deep belief that our elders lead the way with their wisdom, sense of history and place in our community.

We always honor them and we are fortunate that the State of California provides a day each year to publicly honor native elders and include the opportunity to honor all elders.

Prior events have been held the first Saturday in June at the California State Indian Museum at Sutter’s Fort in Sacramento.  So this year the Museum will host the 35th Annual Honored Elders Day.

When:          Saturday, June 2, 2012

Time:            10am to 3pm

Where:          State Indian Museum/Sutter’s Fort State Park     2618 K Street

Sacramento, California

The celebration includes native music and dance, prayers, vendors and food (free for our elders, inexpensive for the rest of us).

This is a family friendly day and a great opportunity to teach our children the way of the elders.

We carry our ancestors in our heart.  They bless us every day.

Please share this information with folks you know, and when you go take your favorite elders with you.  Celebrate them every day!

If you need more information call the State Parks folks at 916-324-0971
