A Toast to Native Peoples
October 26, 2017
The Gold Nugget Museum is proud to present “A Toast to Native Peoples,” on Thursday, October 26 at 7 p.m. This event showcases the museum’s Native Peoples exhibits of Native American art and the Maidu School Program. Local authors Richard Burrill and Garth Nielsen will discuss their books, and Native American art collectors and experts will be on hand to answer questions.
The exhibit is one of the museum’s most ambitious, featuring artwork and artifacts on loan from private collectors. It includes graphic art, kachina dolls, baskets, rugs, pottery, beadwork, and jewelry. The exhibit highlights tribes from the Pacific Northwest Coast through the South and Midwest, including the Hopi, Nez Perce, Apache, Chippewa, Shoshone, and Navajo. The museum’s hands-on program that teaches elementary school students about the local Maidu tribes also is presented.
Admission is $5 for Gold Nugget Museum members and $10 for non-members. A complimentary glass of champagne is included. There will be a no-host bar, and refreshments will be served. Anyone signing up for a new museum membership will be admitted for $5.
The Gold Nugget Museum is located at 502 Pearson Road in Paradise. For additional information, call the museum at (530) 872-8722 or visit goldnuggetmuseum.com.
