As per normal last month, October was busy but I worked hard, had a lot of fun and made a lot of new connections.
At the beginning of the month I attended the Annual American Indian Celebration at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum. This rare and unique eclectic folk art structure is located in northeastern Los Angeles County. The museum houses objects created by the American Indian cultures of the western Great Basin, California, and the Southwest. The Celebration featured Native American dancers and many Native American artists who work with the museum and staff on a regular basis. The Museum was open to the public during this event. Due to budget cuts in California this state park is on the list to be closed in 2012; the museum is trying to independently raise funds in hopes of keeping it open longer. This is such a jewel of the desert, so please take the time to visit their website.
