SOUTH BELOIT - A celebration on Native American culture will be presented from 1 - 2 p.m. on Sunday at Nature at the Confluence, 306 Dickop St., South Beloit.

The program features Kim Sigafus, an award-winning Ojibwa author and speaker, who will be dressed in jingle dress regalia as she shares her heritage and culture through music and dance.

Sigafus will explain the importance of Native American ceremonies and why music is a key component to them. The audience will be invited to learn traditional songs in the Native language and can participate in a pow wow circle where the audience can sing, play a rain stick or drum and dance.

Visitors will also learn about a new public art sculpture that is being installed this summer on the Confluence Campus by Ho-Chunk artist Truman Lowe entitled "Ke-Chunk Ciporoke."

People are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for the event. More details can be found at www.natureattheconfluence.com or call 815-200-6910.
