On Friday, Nov. 1Clark College will welcome the community as it hosts “”Educating for the Seventh Generation,”” a celebration of indigenous cultures. The event begins at 5 p.m. with a welcome address and a performance by Native American flutist and flute-maker Isaac Trimble. Indian tacos will be served during the performance. Opening ceremonies for a Pow Wow begin at 6 p.m. and closing ceremonies will take place at 10 p.m.

This is the fifth year that Clark College has coordinated and hosted an event in honor of Native American Heritage Month. It is one of four signature events hosted by the college annually to celebrate diverse cultures.

According to organizers, the title references “a responsibility to pass on and teach the future seven generations to protect our resources, culture and heritage. It is a way of caring and preserving for those yet unborn, to leave the world a better place when you pass on … a true sustainable practice.” Information about Native American Heritage Month is available at http://nativeamericanheritagemonth.gov/about/index.html.
