October – November 2013
The United Clans Swordsman Association will be holding our Bi-Annual sword fighting competition on October 12th 2013 at Liberty Park in Salt Lake city.
Though the competition is only open to current members of the Association, all are welcome to come and watch this competition.
The organization, which teaches long sword, short sword, dagger, and grappling, holds these competitions 2 times a year, in April and October, and is an opportunity for our members, and the community to see what it is that we teach as well as showcasing the best of our skills in a competition atmosphere.
“salt 8″ featured artist Shigeyuki Kihara will perform her iconic solo dance, which draws on the classical Samoan taualuga to retell the cultural legacy of colonialism in Samoa from an indigenous perspective. Kihara is a prominent artist born in Samoa and based in New Zealand; her work investigates the complexities of cultural identity, colonialism, representation, gender roles, and spirituality through performance, photography, and video. Kihara’s work is featured in the salt gallery, as well as inserted into the UMFA’s Pacific Island galleries in the Dolores Doré Eccles and Frank Sanguinetti Exhibition Wing—a photographic intervention meant to stimulate dialogue among the objects.
Celebrate the Spirits 2013 will be held at the Newpark Town Plaza in Park
City, UT. Participants will be encouraged to trick-or-treat along the 5K and 1-mile routes at tents sponsored by local businesses. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Camp Hobé, a non-profit
organization that provides a summer camp for kids with cancer and their siblings. Costumes highly encouraged!
Tickets: $20 per individual runner, or $50 per family of runners.

24th Annual Navajo Rug Show & Sale
Weaving Winter Stories

Snow Park Lodge, Deer Valley Resort
Park City, UT
The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program provides food, basic medicines and other necessities for elders living traditionally on the Navajo Reservation in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. During the Rug Show, 30 Navajo weavers and their families visit Park City to demonstrate traditional weaving techniques and to sell their rugs. They return home with all the proceeds from their rug sales. This year, the weavers have woven winter stories, with such designs as wintry mountain scenes and beautifully varied snowflakes. Please bring your family to this special event where you can learn about Navajo culture from the Elders themselves, enjoy seeing hundreds of rugs and, perhaps, take one home. For more information, please visit www.anelder.org or call 435.649.0535
