Native Indian Cultural Event



On the same rainy Thursday as the die-in at the Federal building, the politically well-connected Friendship House Association of American Indians (click here for the website)...



...assembled four tipis (their spelling)...



...around Civic Center Plaza, along with dozens of tented booths.



It was for the second annual "Native Indian Cultural Event" (click here to see coverage of last year's much more modest "event")...



...and unfortunately it was a complete washout.



The rain and howling winds didn't stop the dancers, however...



...or the live singers and drummers sitting underneath a tent.



Mayor Gavin Newsom was slated to attend the event...



...though I'm not sure he actually showed up and subjected his hair gel to the elements.



Better luck next year, Native Indians.
