“Women of Wisdom” event to celebrate Native American culture

Women of Wisdom event to celebrate Native American culture

Three Native American speakers will come to Chico State for an event focusing on local tribes and women’s stories Tuesday.

According to a release, this event spotlights Betty Jo Smith of the Wintu Klamath tribe, Elizabeth Lara-O’Rouke of the Chilula, Hupa and Yurok tribes and Joyce L. Gonzalez of the Apache, Eastern Cherokee and Pueblo tribes. Through their storytelling, the speakers aim to educate community members and help them gain an appreciation for local tribes and their historical and present cultures. There will be a key focus on women’s experiences.

There will also be a basketry exhibit showcasing the work of local artist Susan Campbell of the Hammawii Pit River, Washoe and Yahmonee tribes.

Food will be available with a menu inspired by Native American cuisine.

The event will be held at the Bell Memorial Hall Auditorium from 5 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. It is free and all community members are encouraged to participate.
