Foothill College forum explores Native American dilemma

"Surviving In Two Worlds: Contemporary Native American Voices," featuring Los Altos Hills resident Lois Crozier-Hogle, is the topic of a Sunday Hidden Villa Community Forum. The forum is set for 2-4 p.m. at Foothill College in forum room 12.

Crozier-Hogle will be the keynote speaker at the forum, which will also feature a panel discussion among prominent Native Americans.

"Surviving In Two Worlds" is also the title of the newly published book by Crozier-Hogle, founder of the Committee for Green Foothills and co-founder of the Peninsula Conservation Center.

Crozier-Hogle, 80, has long been an activist for humanitarian and environmental concerns. Her book, co-authored by Darryl Babe Wilson and a member of the Pit River tribe of northeastern California, examines Native Americans and their dilemma: living in two cultures, that of their native tribe and that of the United States.

The forum at Foothill College is preceded by a free outdoor performance by the Yellow Feather Singers 2 p.m. this coming Saturday at the Hidden Villa Visitors Welcome Center in Los Altos Hills.

The cultural drum group, comprised mainly of children, will present different styles of Native American song and dance, its history and tribal traditions.

For tickets to the Sunday forum and for sponsor tickets to a reception for the speaker and panelists, call 949-8653.
