    Enjoy an amazing cultural experience close to home!

    Member Cheewa James will open her home in Roseville share her amazing Native American Collection.  

    AMERICA’S NATIVE PEOPLE 

    A brief look at the basic cultures and nations of American Indians, including the recent advent of casinos, will be presented. A sample of Native drumming and song will be given.

    The bulk of Native items in Cheewa's possession were collected by her father (1900 - 1982), who is Modoc, and her mother (1904 -1962), the daughter of German immigrants. The items were collected when they lived on Oregon’s Klamath Reservation where Cheewa was born. The baskets, pottery, beadwork, rugs, dolls and artwork come from tribes throughout the U.S. and most date before 1940.

    Don't miss this up-close and personal cross-cultural experience!

    Questions about the program?  Contact Cheewa at cheewa@cheewa.com or 916-666-7520

    Everyone is invited to LEO lunch at 12:00 in Timbers at the Lodge Restaurant in Roseville - Sun City.  A second group of members can sign up for a tour following lunch at 1:30.
