The Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians and Coyote Valley Shodakai Casino are sponsoring the event, which includes plans for games, booths, music, and barbecues. The Coyote Valley Tribal Council has extended an invitation to all families and community members.
"We hope that the community will join us in celebrating our culture and traditions," said Coyote Valley Tribal Chairman John Feliz Jr. "The Tribe is especially excited that this year marks the tenth anniversary of this celebration and would like to thank all of our neighbors for helping to make this such a successful event year after year."
The Big Time Celebration will begin on Saturday, July 1 at 11:30 a.m. with registration for the Fifth Annual Tom Ramos Memorial Stick Game Tournament. A traditional stick game consists of two teams each with a set of sticks. Each team hides two bones (one stick and one tie) and the other team guesses the location of the tie bone. Teams who guess wrong lose a stick. The team who collects all of the sticks wins the game.
Most of the events are free of charge. Saturday's festivities will include: Native dancers throughout the day; Jubilee Jumps and waterslides for children; Stick game tournaments; a traditional salmon barbecue; native bear dancers at dusk; live music from The Wild Horses Band. Sunday's activities will include: native dancers throughout the day; Jubilee Jumps and waterslides for children; announcement of winners of the stick game tournament; Angeline's Café barbecue; live music from The Jay Blue Band.
The celebration will end with a closing prayer at 9 p.m. on Sunday.
