Come join us for an Emmy award-winning movie diving deep into the roots of Rock 'N Roll and the unsung Native musicians that built the entertainment genre we know and love. November is #NativeHeritageMonth. Celebrate with us all that Indigenous communities contribute in the way of art and culture, locally and around the world!
Tonight, we focus on how Native artists invented, influenced, changed rock music - where it started, and where it's going. Featuring artists such as Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix and Mildred Bailey
The basket weaving and traditional artwork of local Takelma descendent and member of the confederated tribes of Siletz, Chantele Rilatos, will also be featured for appreciation.
When: November 12, Saturday
Doors open at 6 PM
Movie starts at 6:30 PM
