Native American Day
The 44th annual Native American Day was celebrated, Thursday, Sept. 22, on the south side of the capitol building. It honored Native Elders who keep the tradition, stories, languages and culture alive for future generations. Governor Brown personally wrote and signed a proclamation for the day.
There were cultural demonstrations, guest speakers, the Tule River Color Guard, traditional games, music and dancing, artisans showcasing their wares, informative booths, including an update on the new California Indian Heritage Center project.
