Dell’Arte International, in partnership with members of the Wiyot Tribe, Two Feathers Native American Family Services and Circus Nonsense, will honor and acknowledge the ancestral lands of the Wiyot Tribe and the interconnected relationship of community, land and the time we have together. 

A remembering; an honoring; a holding vigil; and a renewing of hope through a ceremony and procession from Downtown Blue Lake to the Banks of the Baduwa’t (Mad River); dance, candlelight and a beautiful spectacle of animal puppetry on parade will accompany the audience, as a community, to acknowledge a year marked by double pandemics of racial injustice and COVID-19.

This will be held Wednesday, July 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. and begin in the Rooney Amphitheater.
