When: Fri., July 6, 6:30 p.m. 2018
Members of the Wiyot tribe will bless the new amphitheater and the Arcata Marsh in general. Then, tribal chair and cultural director Juwaksh Ted Hernandez will give a talk entitled “The Wakening of Wiyot Dances and Ceremonies” that discusses how these cultural events were re-awakened after the Massacre of 1860. To reach the amphitheater, from the South G Street parking lot, walk toward the Interpretive Center, but don’t turn off to the left. The amphitheater is straight ahead on the left. There is seating for 30-40 people on backless wooden benches, so attendees may want to bring a light folding chair. For more information, call (707) 826-2359.
