Tolowa to dance Saturday

Members of the Tolowa Nation will present a dance demonstration Saturday that’s meant to re-establish positive relationships between humans and the earth.

The Na-dosh is a renewal ceremony traditionally performed inside a redwood plank house. But on Saturday the demonstration will be held in a redwood grove overlooking the Smith River, according to a Redwood National and State Parks press release.

The demonstration will be co-hosted by Redwood National and State Parks, the Redwood Parks Association and the Tolowa Nation. Participants are encouraged to bring blankets or folding chairs. The dance will be held at 1 p.m. at the day-use area in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park on U.S. Highway 199 west of Hiouchi. 

There is limited parking near the day-use area. A special event parking area will be available for those wishing to attend the event without paying day-use fees. The special parking area will be located across Highway 199 from the Hiouchi Information Center and will require a 1/3-mile-long walk to the day use area. A shuttle will be available for visitors unable to walk to the site.

For more information, call Ranger Jim Wheeler at 465-7764 or the park information line at 465-7335.
