THE CALIFORNIA INDIAN
THE JOURNEY OF ELDERS
The “Journey of Elders” is a new topic for the lecture series. This lecture gives those of you who regularly attend our CIMCC lectures the opportunity to hear original stories about Native American life in this part of the world in the 20th century. In many Native American communities, growing old does not necessarily transform one into an “Elder”. The status of “Elder” means much more than being first in line at community dinners or being patronized by those who do not understand the role of the “Elder” in Native American communities. Come join us for this free lecture. You will appreciate and enjoy the words of experience and wisdom.
