Native American Heritage, A Cultural Excursion Day.

The Lost City Museum of Archaeology in Overton, Nevada sponsors Native American Heritage Day. I spent the day there watching traditional dances, enjoying live flute songs, and even more importantly hearing about things that plague Native American life as well as what they are doing as a community to improve their standing as a community and as a people.

Cultural Excursion Day is a concept I came up with in my travels. No matter where I am in the world I try to take a few days every month to do things there that can’t be done anywhere else in the world.  The goal is to expose myself to cultures, activities, and people who I ordinarily wouldn’t be able to because they are unique to where I am living at the time.  I go out to take part in something special to that part of the world. Being able to step into other cultures and learn how they live is a crucial Life Skill. Here is one of my favorite adventures.
