February MSWIT Dinner will take place in Metairie at the Acme Oyster House Restaurant on Vets Hwy.
We look forward to seeing many of you at our February Dinner Meeting at Acme Oyster House, on Vets Hwy (near Causeway Blvd.), Tuesday, February 27. We have a great menu planned and you will be able to select the entree you prefer when your waiter takes your order.
Our Speaker is Grayhawk Perkins
Grayhawk Perkins is best described as a “21st Century Renaissance Man” The musician, historian, artist, author, tribal storyteller, naturalist and educator was born in New Orleans and has lived on the northshore for 24 years, but he says, “Everybody claims me.” Of Choctaw and Houma Nation descendancy, his heart’s work is preserving the traditions of his people through music, storytelling, cooking, writing, crafts, artwork, and more. His never-meta-stranger personality helps. After five minutes with Perkins, you feel like you’ve known him all your life.
For our brief presentation, Grayhawk will focus on the many Native American traditions that intertwine in our daily lives today.
