  2. Nevada City Story Walk

    February 10, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

    Walk through downtown Nevada City and enjoy the Story Walk of Home to Medicine Mountain a book by Chiori Santiago featured in participating shop windows. This walk begins at Harmony Books, 130 Main St. Nevada City. The book is about a time in the 1930s when two young brothers are sent to a government-run Indian residential school -- an experience shared by generations of Native American children. At these schools, children are forbidden to speak their native tongue and are taught to abandon their Indian ways. Native American artist Judith Lowry's illustrations are inspired by the stories she heard from her father and uncle. The lyrical narrative and compelling paintings blend memory and myth in this bittersweet story of the boys' journey home one summer and the healing power of their culture.
