At 2:00 pm join Dr. Candillo at the Sycamore Flats Pavilion located in Pisgah National Forest for a formal presentation on Sacred Spaces: Traditional Native American Perspective about Land & Environment.
Dr. Candillo will explore traditional Native Americans perspectives pertaining to place, land ownership, animals, plants, human beings, and the use of natural resources by human beings.
