CIRCLE LEGACY CENTER'S MONTHLY NATIVE AMERICAN PROGRAMS Circle Legacy Center's 2nd Friday programs are held at Community Mennonite Church - 328 W. Orange St., Lancaster, PA (enter at last door on the end - on the side of church that borders Concord St --> inside you go down a flight of stairs). Programs are from 7:00 - 9:00 PM (doors open at 6:30). Circle Legacy Center presents Native American programs every 2nd Friday of the month. Our programs are cultural, educational, entertaining and engaging. We offer a venue for networking, social interacting, teaching and learning. We provide a platform for Native American cultural educators, artists, performers, and people to share their knowledge and talents with the community. Our intention is to educate, and unite people to support Native American People and causes. Circle Legacy provides snacks and beverages, and sometimes include a larger selection. Other times we ask the community to bring pot luck dishes to share. Most programs are for adults, unless otherwise stated. There is an area where kids can play, but must be supervised by an adult at all times. For information about current programs, please refer to our HOME page and Face Book page.
The Circle Legacy Presents our 2nd Friday Program
while you are waiting for our new improved website....come on out to enjoy our January 9th, 2015, our SECOND FRIDAY PROGRAM..the presentation of:
THE DOCUMENTARY FILM
The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television described the film here:
“Reel Injun is an entertaining and insightful look at the Hollywood Indian, exploring the portrayal of North American Natives through a century of cinema. Travelling through the heartland of America and into the Canadian North, Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world’s understanding – and misunderstanding – of Natives. With clips from hundreds of classic and recent films, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native directors, writers, actors, and activists including Clint Eastwood, Robbie Robertson, Graham Greene, Adam Beach, and Zacharias Kunuk, Reel Injun traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Native people from the silent film era to present day.”

As received from our presenter for 2nd Friday program on November 14, 2014:
I'm Jack Richardson of the Halliwa Saponi tribe, however my native heritage comes form the Nesmond and Mherring people. I am a former native of North Carolina and moved to York, PA back in 1960. I've lived in York Co. for 54 yrs with the exception of 2 years in the Army. Since the early eighties, I've been very involved in my Native Culture. Back at that time there was a number of native people living in the area, with children growing up. We attended a lot of Pow-Wows. As time passed, we eventually started a culture group to share the heritage. We did a lot of performing around the state and in the UK. At that time we were in need of a drum, so I took the opportunity with some coaching, to make a drum for the group. That was when I got interested in drum making and since then I've been making them. This lead me to making regalia, moccasins and other native crafts. I've been the facilitator of the Indian Steps Native festival for many years. I enjoy my culture by dancing, singing and drumming with the local drum groups. With the upcoming event, I'll be happy to share more.
Please join us to welcome Jack and learn how to make a traditional drum this November 14th.
Join us for our October 2nd Friday Culture Program!
Joseph Strider 4 time music award nominee and Chaplain, Native American Spiritual Leader for the Dept. of Corrections PA will play a couple of tunes, and give you the inside scoop on what it is like working with convicted felons in a state correctional institution, in attempts to help those who wish to begin to learn to walk in the traditions of the Indigenous ancestors who came before us, pre- Columbus era. And in attempt to help them to use these traditional values in a way to help them to walk in a warriors way after their release back into the society of today. Not for the faint hearted or closed minded, and for those who realize that everyone makes mistakes, and some who are paying a debt to society CAN be helped to lead a useful and productive life outside prison walls, given the will and caring attention to do so.

A story of courage and resilience to kickoff Father's Day Weekend!
We will be presenting the Movie: Running Bravethe Life of Billy Mills. 1964 Gold Medalist.
William Mervin "Billy" Mills, also known as Mak
ata Taka Hela (born June 30, 1938), is the second Native American(after Jim Thorpe) to win an Olympic gold medal. He accomplished this feat in the 10,000 meter run (6.2 mi) at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, becoming the only person from the western hemisphere to ever to win the Olympic gold in this event. His 1964 victory is considered one of the greatest of Olympic upsets. A former United States Marine, Billy Mills is a member of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Tribe.
June will see Billy Mills celebrate his 74th birthday. In honor of this and the 50th Anniversary of his Gold Medal effort, we will show this movie and have a birthday card for all to sign so we may send this to him.
