On Saturday, October 13, the 2012 Dinner in the Canyons will take place in the magnificent palm oasis of Andreas Canyon – an ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. Proceeds from this public event help fund Museum exhibitions, educational programs, and cultural festivals.
Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception overlooking the scenic Coachella Valley at sunset, followed by an elegant three-course dinner under the stars, entertainment, and a live auction featuring exquisite Native jewelry.
Entertainment for the evening features dance, song, and storytelling with Chuna McIntyre and the Nunamta (of “Our Land”) Yup’ik Eskimo Singers and Dancers from the shores of the Bering Sea in southwest Alaska. Experience the richness of Alaska’s Native cultural heritage through their performance of centuries-old art forms in traditional regalia with authentic Yup’ik masks and artifacts. This will be an experience you will remember long after the last dance.
Attire is desert festive/smart casual. Leave the tuxedo and other formal attire in the closet…bring out the turquoise, silver, and those comfy shoes. Treat yourself to this special night of casual elegance, Native culture, and fun…while supporting the mission of Agua Caliente Cultural Museum!
