Native American Heritage Day Concerts
Why we produce the annual Native American Heritage Day (NAHD) Concert
HonorWorks believes that this annual concert helps unify the community and make our region a better place to live through thoughtful interactions with people of diverse cultures. The concert represents an opportunity for local Native American artists to communicate their culture and heritage, and share their skills, gifts and talents. We believe that doing so increases understanding, appreciation and respect among our peoples.
NAHD Concert Update
HonorWorks is currently organizing the 5th annual Bellingham Native American Heritage Day Concert to be held on Friday, November 27, 2015.
Native American Heritage Day is a significant event in the history of the United States that recognizes and honors the rich cultural heritage, history and vital contributions of America's indigenous peoples on the Friday after Thanksgiving Day. To understand the history of our region is to honor and appreciate the history of its original inhabitants.
This year will be our 5th annual concert. The first year, we had about 75 attendees. The second year, we had 120. The third year, 180 people attended, and last November, we had 250 people in attendance. The comments we receive validate that the concert contributes to more awareness of local Native American culture. We want to continue to expand this concert, and are currently working on creating a concert series for 2016, to bring a Native American Heritage Appreciation Concert in the month of November throughout our region.
HonorWorks is looking for sponsors and volunteers to help support this year's event. To donate or find out how you can help, please contact us.
