LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ EOU’s Native American Heritage Month activities begin with a special appearance by the Nixyaawii Community High School drummers on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Students will perform at 12 p.m. in the Hoke Union Building’s second floor main lounge. The event is free and open to the public.
Area elementary schools are also invited to attend and experience drumming as an integral part of American Indian culture. Teachers interested in bringing their classes should contact J Johansen, Speel-Ya club president, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The celebration continues on Friday, Nov. 9 when area musician Mark Stratton and his band Lost Creek Road bring their signature “hot country and rockin’ blues” to EOU.
The concert starts at 9 p.m. in the Hoke Union Building main lounge. General admission is $5 per person. EOU students with ID pay $3 per person, or $5 for two.
Other activities being planned by Speel-Ya, EOU’s Native American Student Council, include a speaker series occurring later this month with more information forthcoming.
