Indegenous People's Day Celebration October 6 5:30 PM

Waukegan Community Unit School District # 60 families will have the opportunity to take part in the District's first-ever official Indigenous People’s Day Celebration next month. 


The event, which will celebrate Native American culture as part of Indigenous People’s Day, will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6 in the Council Circle of Bowen Park, 1800 North Sheridan Road.


The event will feature performances from both the Potawatomi Dance Troop and the Concheros del Ballet Folklorico Tayahua dance troupe. Admission is free and open to all community members. 


The Bowen Park Council Circle features 16 trees that have been planted in a circle to celebrate the important role this land played in Native American cultures and is located on the far east end of the park, just south of the Buckley Hills neighborhood. The living ring of trees is a timeless representation of equality and friendship.


Anyone with questions can contact District 60’s Parent Engagement Manager Angela Ramirez at anramirez@wps60.org.
