Join Indigenous Education and Ollin Yoliztli Calmecac as they work to accentuate the accomplishments and continued presence of indigenous peoples in Philadelphia. Together, we will explore indigenous connections to the river through collaborative art activities, workshops, presentations, guided tours, food, drumming, and dancing.
