The culture of Native Americans will be front and center at an All Nations Celebration of drums, songs, dances, fun stories, and door prizes on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2 – 6 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John in Los Angeles.

The celebration, sponsored by St. John’s and the Diocese of Los Angeles’ Native Ministry program, is open to all, and will be held inside the cathedral, located at 514 W Adams Blvd, Los Angeles 90007.

“This event is the first time we have reached out to the diocese with a celebration of Native American culture,” says the Rev. Canon Mary Crist, who is the diocese’s native ministries officer and directs an outreach program at St. Michael’s Ministry Center, Riverside. She notes that more than 250,000 Native Americans live in Los Angeles County; many more live in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Crist invites all to the celebration, which will begin at 2 p.m., and a potluck dinner, which will begin at 4 p.m. For more information, contact Crist at
