Culture Night

This amazing, family-friendly, cultural gathering is the cornerstone of NAYA’s cultural arts programming. Culture Night is a time where families and community members can come together to participate in any number of activities: beading, singing, crafting, intertribal drumming and dancing. Culture Nights also offer workshops, often hands-on, where you can learn all kinds of Indigenous teachings.

Because we understand that people in this urban community come with very different experiences and familiarity with their cultures, this is a very welcoming, non-judgmental, informal gathering for everyone’s—elder, adult, and youth alike—enrichment.

Culture Night occurs during the school year on most month’s second and fourth Wednesdays from 6:00 – 7:00 PM (if online) and 6 – 7:30 PM (if in person), with holidays and school closures observed.

COVID considerations: Please note that at this time, due to safety precautions, we will not be sharing a meal during Culture Night. We will also adjust the setting (online/in person) as needed and will be taking additional safety measures when in person to ensure everyone’s safety. This will include wearing masks and requiring sign ups ahead of time to keep attendance at a safe number. Please join NAYA’s Culture Nights Facebook Group for updated information.
