The 21st annual celebration of Indigenous People’s Day took place on Saturday in Berkeley. There was exhibition dancing, a pow wow, gourd dancing, and an Indian market with Native American foods and arts and crafts. The event was held in Civic Center Park and the backdrop was the city’s Saturday Farmers Market. This Year’s pow wow was dedicated to the memory of Don Littlecloud Davenport. Ted Friedman was there to take photographs.
