Nevada City IPD Opening – Thursday, Oct 6th, 6PM – New Location

This year, IPD has a new location for our Nevada City IPD Opening.  On Thursday, October 6th at 6PM, we will gather at Pata Panaka out at Burton Ranch, 16200 Lake Vera Purdon Rd off N Bloomfield Rd in Nevada City.  For those who remember, this is the tribal site where we used to hold Indigenous Peoples Days several years back.  Chairman Don Ryberg, spiritual counselor Fred ‘Coyote’ Downey,  and others will say a few words. Mother drum, Otsigeya will perform and Lawrence Laughing will lead us in a Round dance under the open sky.  We hope you can join together with us.
