Calling all Dragonflies

When the dragonflies come to you, the Ushkana lullaby says, it's because you're open to them and calm in spirit. If you're in inner turmoil, they'll stay away.

Our Head Dragonfly, Center President and Founder Ernest H. Siva, will share this beautiful song and more as a special guest of the Dragonfly Winds Flute Class on Saturday starting at 5 p.m., 127 N. San Gorgonio Ave., Banning. Come hear Native American stories and songs.

The class, led by members of the Inland Empire Flute Circle, meets every second Saturday to play Native American wooden flutes. Beginners are welcome, and if you don't have a flute, the teachers will loan you one. 

The emphasis is on playing from the heart. The gentle creativity of the Native American flute certainly helps one remain open for any and all dragonflies to come. Please do. 

Your $10 will go to Dorothy Ramon Learning Center's work to save and share Southern California's Native American cultures, languages, history, and music and traditional arts.
