ESCONDIDO–California Center for the Arts, Escondido will present “Journeys to the Past,” a exploration of the lifestyle of the California Indian.
The performance will focus on the Acjachemen Nation, which flourished in Southern California hundreds of years ago before the Spanish influx.
Performances will feature powwows, songs and stories shared by award-winning storyteller Jacque Tahuka-Nunez, as she demonstrates her ancestors’ history, dwellings, basket weaving and dances.
During the traditional dances, children will get the opportunity to participate and will leave with a wonderful understanding of environmentalism and what it means to be “keepers of the earth”.
The Center will present two shows on February 6. The first show will be at 9:30 a.m. and the second at 11:30 a.m.
To encourage education through the arts, the Center is providing this performance to students and the public at only $3 per ticket.
