Plans are under way for a new event happening at the Center Street gazebo in Lewiston this summer.

Neto Hatinakwe Onkwehowe has teamed up with the Lewiston Council on the Arts to present Earth Voices of the Great Spirit, an all-day event that will celebrate Native American culture on Aug 21.

Earth Voices of the Great Spirit will strive to promote a deeper appreciation of the significance of indigenous history by exploring the rich cultural traditions and heritage of native peoples in our region, expressed through traditional and contemporary arts, music, drumming, dance, food and storytelling.

"We welcome everyone to join us in a day of sharing, to celebrate the music and culture that has spanned generations and continues to attract new audiences.  It promises to be a day filled with educational activities and entertainment for the whole family," said Allan Jamieson, Neto Hatinakwe Onkwehowe. Partners also include the Lewiston Public Library, Niagara River Chamber of Commerce, Thunderbird Tipi Village and the Native American Museum of Art.
