Native American History Month

Native Tonuges
Nov. 3, 2011

This month that is for celebrating Native American/American Indian culture should be a celebration for all of us for these cultures and these peoples are an integral part of how and why we have these modern lives of ours.

Today on Sophie's Parlor I have merely brought together women throughout the Americas singing their songs, playing their instruments, and telling their stories.

Hopefully you gained some insight. Learned a new thing. And most importantly are now more aware of these women, their cultures, and the grave importance of its impact on us all.

Want to again thank the dynamic duo Irka Mateo and Julia Keefe for coming through the Parlor this afternoon. They both gave great information and a few laughs as well.

Locate them through the information below
