International Night of the Moon
It must be October, because the nights are colder and popular topics include the moon, harvest, mythical creatures, and mazes. CSI is a great place to enjoy the season, and Saturday night is no exception. Before you attend the presentation at the Herrett Center, take the family to the Corn Maze...best deal out there at $1! Ages 6 an under are free. The maze opens at 5 PM each night.
Shane Ridley Stevens, who sometimes goes by his Indian name, ‘Good Bear,’ will be featured at the International Observe the Moon night starting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8 at the Herrett Center for Arts and Science on the College of Southern Idaho campus.
Stevens has entertained and educated audiences of all ages for more than 20 years, often addressing the misconceptions and stereotypes of America’s indigenous people. He uses storytelling, music, and dance in his presentations. His performance for the event is titled ‘Indigenous Stories of How the Moon Came To Be.’ It will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Herrett Center’s Rick Allen Room, after which the monthly star party will begin in and around the Centennial Observatory.
The entire event is free and open to the public.
