Native California - Arts & Culture Salon - September 23rd
The Excelsior Arts & Culture Salon hosts a book talk with Dr. Dolan Eargle, author of Native California: An Introductory Guide to the Original Peoples from Earliest to Modern Times. The indigenous groups of this state are undergoing considerable change - much of it in the recovery of almost lost cultures - language, ceremonies, basketry, land, and even tribal members. Dr. Eargle has spent the past 35 years visiting and learning from native Californians and identifying their arts, customs, and beliefs.
