Heritage Day tells Nisenan story

By
From page B14 | November 01, 2013 |

The Nisenan tribe of the Nevada City Rancheria, the Nevada County campus of Sierra College, the California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project and the Firehouse No. 1 Museum in Nevada City invite the public to the fourth annual Nisenan Heritage Day on Saturday, Nov. 2, in the Multipurpose Center at the Sierra College Nevada County campus, 250 Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley.

The day will be filled with California indigenous culture and education with special focus on the Nisenan of the Nevada City Rancheria, which was known as “Campoodie” and located outside of Nevada City.

“We are proud to have this year’s Heritage Day event co-sponsored by Sierra College,” said Shelly Covert, secretary of the Nevada City Rancheria Tribal Council. “The Nisenan story belongs in our educational system from grammar school to college. We see the co-sponsorship with Sierra College as a huge first step in that direction. This year’s theme ‘Rekindling the Spirit’ speaks well to the reintroduction of Nisenan history into the educational system.”

Native American and academic/professional speakers will give individual presentations as well as panel style discussion about current events and topics of historical and cultural relevance. Descendants from the Nevada City Rancheria will talk about their history and stories of survival.

Maidu Dancers and traditionalists will return, including direct descendants of Nisenan ‘Chief’ Louis Kelly. Master basket weavers will weave during the event and participants can try their hand at preparing acorn flour. Respected California Native artists will bring beautiful, quality jewelry, and art for show and sale. Local authors will be present for conversation and book sales.

This community event is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking is free.
