(November 14) GOING NATIVE Dancers chant and sway at the National Museum of the American Indian on the National Mall for two shows tomorrow, at 2 and 7:30pm. The Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble features the traditional dance and music of the Plains and Woodlands Nations. The program includes "Drum is the Thunder, Flute is the Wind," a Native American ballet, and the "Hoop Dance," expressing the unity of humankind.

They fire up the kiln to about 1800 degrees for a Raku Party Fundraiser using smoke and fire to create Raku-style patterns and designs. You can make your own unique ceramic masterpiece.
