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 at1 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.
