Native American drum group to perform April 23

SouthEastern WaterSpider will return to campus for a concert Monday, April 23, at 6 p.m. in Thompson Student Union Room 2584.

The free performance by the Eastern Woodland Native American drum group is part of the University’s celebration of Diversity Month.

“We are happy to welcome back SouthEastern WaterSpider,” Dr. Michele Soliz, assistant vice president for student success and inclusion, said. “The group’s performance of traditional music spotlights their heritage and is educational and entertaining.”

The group will play traditional Eastern Woodland songs that have been approved by their elders as genuinely Eastern and indigenous.

Diversity Month is presented by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Multicultural Student Success.
