Frank LittleBear, a First Nation-Native American lecturer, performing artist and musician will demonstrate Native American culture through a lecture and dance performance on Thursday Nov. 6, at 12:00 p.m. in Hayfield House and then again at 7:00 p.m. in Barry Auditorium. The event is free to the public and is part of Penn State Wilkes-Barre's commitment to cultural diversity.
During the two shows, LittleBear will entertain audience members with a variety of dance routines aimed at showcasing the differences in music and culture of the many indigenous nations that reside throughout the United States. "My performance is both traditional and contemporary, showing styles of Native American heritage along with historical lessons, said LittleBear." He will also lead a group discussion on ancient legends and philosophies that vividly illustrate the spirit of First Nation culture.
