Amphitheater Blessing and Opening Lecture

Members of the Wiyot tribe will bless the new amphitheater and the Arcata Marsh in general. Then, tribal chair and cultural director Juwaksh Ted Hernandez will give a talk entitled “The Wakening of Wiyot Dances and Ceremonies” that discusses how these cultural events were re-awakened after the Massacre of 1860. To reach the amphitheater, from the South G Street parking lot, walk toward the Interpretive Center, but don’t turn off to the left. The amphitheater is straight ahead on the left. There is seating for 30-40 people on backless wooden benches, so attendees may want to bring a light folding chair. For more information, call (707) 826-2359.
