The American River Natural History Association (ARNHA) and the Effie Yeaw Nature Center invite you to a very special evening of Native American music presented by Mary Youngblood and Sisters of the Earth.

 

Mary Youngblood, one of the premier Native American musicians in the country, is a two-time GRAMMY winner and EMMY nominee and the first Native American person to have won two GRAMMYs. When Mary performs, it takes only a moment to recognize the profound spirituality of the sacred Native American flute and its historical courtship and wooing attributes. Her haunting music is much more than a song -- it is liquid poetry, a prayer.

The concert will take place in the beautiful Effie Yeaw Nature Center beside the replica Maidu summer village.  Bring percussion instruments!
