Diversity Council Hosts Native American Heritage Concert
By Eddy Ball
True to tradition, the NIEHS Diversity Council gave NIEHS employees and contractors something a little different when it presented a concert in the NIEHS cafeteria by R. Carlos Nakai and Keola Beamer in celebration of Native American Heritage Month November 30.
Hosted by EEO Specialist Gerard Roman and attended by nearly 50 people, the performance featured music on the slack key guitar, Native American cedar wood flute and the Hawaiian nose flute, which didn't turn out to be nearly as ridiculous as the term might suggest.
