Poetry to Native California Day
Friday, September 25, 2020
California Native American Day is celebrated each year on the fourth Friday of September. This state holiday serves not only to recognize tribal people but also to learn about California tribal cultures, histories, and heritage. For the first time, UCLA’s American Indian Studies Center will commemorate California Native American Day by hosting a Zoom poetry event featuring local tribal poets: Emily Clarke from the Cahuilla Tribe, and Kelly Caballero and Megan Dorame from the Tongva tribe. Each poet will share knowledge of their language, culture, and traditional life of contemporary California Native women. They will discuss issues facing their communities, as well asthe perseverance of their cultures.
