Celebrate with Native Americans

Native American Cultural Days kicks off the spring cultural festivals at UC Davis April 6-10 with the theme “Seventh Generation Rising”.

According to the group’s mission statement, the idea of the “seventh generation” as a powerful force is common to many Native American nations.

“It is up to the present generation, this seventh generation, of youth to provide leadership and example for our future,” the mission statement says.

The Native American Cultural Days Web site includes a calendar of events and a page of important cultural touchstones — recipes, including those for frybread, Indian tacos and Cherokee blackberry cobbler.
