John Muir: Watch, Pray & Fight
Date & TimeWed. June 26th, 2019 in the Grand Hall
John Muir, Watch, Pray and Fight is a one-man show starring Mark Raddatz as the legendary mountaineer, naturalist and founder of the Sierra Club. More than a year in preparation, this unique piece has been presented to enthusiastic audiences across the country for the last 18 years. The special quality of John Muir, Watch, Pray and Fight rises from the fact that Raddatz has composed his script entirely from Muir’s own words. Not a biographical essay or paraphrase of an animal story, this is Muir as he would have appeared and spoken to an audience in his own time.

Wa She Shu It’ Deh Native American Arts Festival
Date & TimeJuly 27th-28th, 2019
Join the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California for the 29th Annual Wa She Shu It’Deh Arts Festival. Enjoy a fun-filled day of cultural events ranging from a Washoe basket competition to traditional dancing, music, stories, plays, basketry and clothing, plus traditional games. This year’s theme is “reclaiming our stewardship practices [of the land].” This theme emphasizes the impacts of climate change as a threat to the Washoe Tribe’s cultural traditions. The Washoe Tribe spent their summers in Lake Tahoe for thousands of years, and this is the one weekend each year they share their history, food and customs with the public. The Washoe people feel it is their responsibility to educate the surrounding communities about the importance of taking proactive steps to protect the natural beauty of Tahoe and the surrounding area. As original stewards the Washoe people have always “left no trace”.
