04/26/2019 - Landsick Exhibit by Rizzhel Mae Javier
The New Americans Museum presents Landsick an exhibit that explores the hybridity of culture, complexity of intergenerational relationships and study of bi national families. Through the archiving of family photos, Javier examines the literal and metaphorical impact of distance between first generation Americans and their migrant ancestors. The installation pays tribute to family history, their place of origin and migration home.

Rizzhel Mae Javier is a San Diego based artist. Her work explores the intersection of memory, culture and human connection. Rizzhel uses art to dissect her identity through the research and creation of autobiographical projects. Through sharing her stories, she hopes to encourage viewers to recall and examine their own memories and personal experiences to learn about the impact on their identity and perception of self.

06/23/2019 - Youth Gathering of Native Americans
The San Diego American Indian Health Center (SDAIHC) will sponsor a Youth Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) from Sunday, June 23, to Thursday, June 27 - at Viejas Casino and Resort located at 5000 Willows Rd, Alpine, CA 91901. The programs will be held in the Willows Ball Room and will run from 9:00 AM to 4:00:00 PM GONA is a culture-based planning process where community members gather to address community-identified issues. The Gathering is a safe place for young people, ages 10-24, to share, heal and plan for action with program leaders who will explain the relationships between historical trauma, cultural resilience and reconnecting to culture. GONA is open to all local Native youth.

GONA programs will focus on four themes:
• Belonging, ensuring that everyone feels welcome in an inclusive, open, safe and trusting environment.
• Mastery, allowing participants to take stock of how historical trauma impacts their communities and what fosters their resilience and holds them together.
• Interdependence, which initiates the planning process to access resources and relationships.
• Generosity, which involves the GONA exercise of creating gifts to share with other participants. This symbolizes each participant's larger gift to their families and communities in helping to address and prevent mental and substance abuse disorders, prevent suicide, and promote positive mental health. GONA is facilitated by community-based trainers and expert consultants, who can safely and effectively lead a group programs. The process involves examining skills, abilities, knowledge, resources and desires that can successfully be used to help meet the community's overall vision and goals. Other sponsors of the event include Sovereign Nation of the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and Native American Health Center. For more information about GONA, please visit www.sdaihc.org or call (619) 234-2158, or contact Lisa Mann-Mattson at lisa.mann-mattson@sdaihc.org or Virginia Suarez at virginia.suarez@sdaihc.org.
