SOUTH AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE DONE RIGHT On July 28, 1821, Peru became independent from Spain. Ever since, that day has been an occasion to party. It’s no different thousands of miles north in Berkeley. Brasa: A Peruvian Joint at 1960 University Avenue will throw open its doors for a special celebration on today, July 27 at 6 p.m. Owners Christopher and Veronica Laramie will be serving heaps of their split roast chicken and famous sides and encouraging patrons to eat in the Rose Garden and dance to the sounds of a Peruvian Criollo trio. Tickets are $10-$20.

Ohlone artist Linda Yamane has spent the last three years weaving 20,000 stitches and thousands of feathers and beads into a traditional tribal basket. Yamane is the first artist to follow the Ohlone basketweaving tradition in over 150 years, and her work displays just the enthusiasm and dedication to Indian culture that the magazine News From Native California celebrates.
