The Ndakinna cultural center presents the first Alamikos Native Storytelling Evening. Alamikos, means the Greetings Maker Moon. It is a time for giving thanks to one another, asking for forgiveness and sharing stories to brighten the cold winter nights. This evening of Native tales will be hosted by the well-known storytelling trio of Joseph, James, and Jesse Bruchac. Due to Covid-19, this year we will be broadcasting the performance via Zoom.
The evening performance on Friday, Jan. 29 will be split into two sections, starting with traditional tales of the Northeastern woodlands at 6 PM. After a short intermission, the second set begins at 7 PM. Suggested Donation of $10 per zoom. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
If you’re interested in learning more about the language and have free time three nights a week, this will be a fun and educational opportunity. While we have suggested donations for each course, full and partial scholarships are available and these programs are open to all.

Winter camps for kids
With the pandemic still on our minds, we will be offering our winter camps again for 2021, with changes to accommodate social distancing and other safety measures. To do so, the two different camps will not run concurrently, but follow each other. Monday and Tuesday will be for 6-8 year old students, and Wednesday through Friday will be our 9-13 year old students. Each group will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants. To save a spot you must sign up and pay an online deposit for each participant. We have a maximum of 4 spots left in each group.
