At 6 p.m., before the performance, Carol Fireheart of the Cherokee Nation will present a "Living Exhibit" in which she will share her knowledge of different types of beading and how it was accomplished by Native Americans.

Fireheart, of Creations of the Heart, will have beading, leather and feather work on display.

LittleBear, of the Cree Nation, is a lecturer, musician and performing artist who has been inspired by his tribe's traditions and beliefs to learn about other indigenous cultures and their ancestral spirituality.
