Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with the Cuyamaca College Library!

Join us on November 20 from 12:30 – 1:30 for a transcendent blend of the past and contemporary expression of American Indian Dance where dancers from various tribal backgrounds join together for an exciting performance in front of the library! Richard DeCrane, a member of the San Diego Inter-Tribal Singers, will return once again as our guest speaker.  Don’t forget to visit the library throughout the month of November! We will feature art, literature and information focused on the fascinating indigenous cultures of the Americas. Check out the first floor display in our foyer where we highlight Native Americans from California including our local tribe, the Kumeyaay. Learn a little about Native American arts, crafts, and myths. Visit with the exhibit animals and check out the beautiful animal pelts on loan from Balboa Park’s Natural History Museum and discover more about Native American animal symbology. Travel to the second floor and gain a deeper understanding of Native American men, women and children and enjoy the wonderful cultural items on display. Want to learn even more about Native Americans? You’re in the right place! The reference librarian on the second floor will be more than happy to introduce you to more information!
