This Saturday, March 17, from 2 until 6 p.m. you can hear the talents of Native American singers and drummers at the California Trail Interpretive Center. Songs, passed down through generations of the Shoshone or Newe people, will be sung.
Featured performers are Bryan Hudson, Lois Whitney, Jeremiah Jones and more. These proud Native American Artists will pass down their musical traditions to the Shoshone youth of Elko and Battle Mountain as well as for the enjoyment of the general public.
Performances and hand game demonstrations are also scheduled. Visitors will have the opportunity to join in the games. Light refreshments will be available at this free event.
Shoshone Singing, Drumming, and Hand Games will be the last of three Newe Night events scheduled at the California Trail Interpretive Center. Contact Shania Cook at the Trail Center for more information.
