Ernest H. Siva will sing Serrano bighorn sheep songs and tell their story (and the bighorns' story) at our last Dragonfly Lecture of the year.
These ancient songs are haunting and beautiful. Ernest Siva is believed to be the only person singing them in recent years.
In 2008 Ernest Siva received a grant from the Alliance for California Traditional Arts to teach the songs to an apprentice. The Fund for Folk Culture supported the songs' recording.

Dorothy Ramon Learning Center is working in other ways to save and share these important songs.
Come hear the songs and learn about them.
Details: Dec. 7, 6 p.m., Dorothy Ramon Learning Center, 17 West Hays, Banning
