Native American Culture Topic of First Friday Series Nov. 6

11/2/2009 —

Penn State York’s First Friday Series continues on Friday, Nov. 6 when Frank LittleBear, a First Nation-Native American lecturer, performing artist, and musician, speaks at noon in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. The program is free and open to the public.

LittleBear will demonstrate Native American culture through lecture and interactive presentations. His performance is both traditional and contemporary, showing styles of Native American heritage along with historical lessons. He will talk about ancient legends and philosophies that vividly illustrate the spirit of First Nation culture. His goal is to create a fun educational atmosphere, so that audience members will enjoy watching Native American culture come to life while having the opportunity to participate in dancing, drumming, and stories from the Southwest, Northern Plains, Eastern Woodlands, and other areas.

The goal of the series is to introduce people to a variety of cultures. The First Friday Series is sponsored by the Penn State York Diversity Committee. Please bring your lunch and plan to take part in this informative program.
