Lipan Apache flutist Chance Landry and grass dancer Kirk Archambault will perform. The free event will be held Nov. 21 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Learning Resource Center Auditorium.

A seventh-generation descendent of one of the five great chiefs of the Lipan Apache tribe, Landry has authored a picture book, “Little Aruka and the Teaching Angels.”
Archambault will perform traditional dances in native regalia. He makes his home at the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate Reservation in South Dakota.
