Lassen College Honors Indigenous Identity and Culture with Special Events

Lassen Community College is inviting everyone to two special events, November 14th and 15th, honoring indigenous identity and culture with special guest speaker, reknowned artist Ben Aleck.

Aleck is a member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, and lives in Nixon, Nevada. He received his formal education in art at the California College of Art in Oakland.

On Tuesday night, from 6:00 to 7:00 in college’s Creative Arts Rm 127, the artist will talk about some of his paintings, which were featured in the Smithsonian, Stewart Musuem, Oakland Museum and the Nevada Museum of Art. He will also share indigenous stories and historical involvements.

On Wednesday the Susanville Indian Rancheria, along with Aleck, will host a Native American Art Show in the college’s cafeteria from 2:00 until 8:00p.m. The show will begin with an opening ceremony at 2:00 and will feature a native youth art display, a show by Ben Aleck and an Indian Taco vendor from 4:00 until 6:30.
