KCC to observe Native American Heritage Month Nov. 12

Kellogg Community College will observe Native American Heritage Month next week with performances by musicians performing Native American music.

The College’s Native American Heritage Month Celebration will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Student Center on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek. Performing will be flutist and saxophonist Ken Morgan, who has studied and performed on several Native American flutes, and percussionist Carolyn Koebel.

Both performers are instructors at Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo.

“The Native American Heritage Month celebration at KCC is designed to give students the opportunity to explore the culture through this unique and gentle style of music,” said Kathy Jones, an academic adviser at KCC. “We will also provide small samples of Native American frybread during the performance for the students to enjoy.”

Native American Heritage Month is celebrated each November to recognize the significant contributions Native Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S.
