Event Description

On 18th September EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht will celebrate Culture Night with a host of intercultural events in Central Library, Letterkenny.
Artists will include:
The Donegal Polish community who will entertain with Polish poetry and music featuring Polish folk group ‘The Hazels’.
Native American Indian Waylon Gary White Deer on the culture of the Choctaw Nation and their links with Ireland plus some Indian chant.
In this EU Year for Development Waylon will talk about his culture as a member of the Choctaw Nation and the very early development aid of $170 which the Chocktaw Nation sent to Ireland during the Irish Famine, despite their own hardship.
Waylon will also put on a show of his own culture with Indian chant and art which will be on display in the library during the week of Culture Night.
The evening will round off with Donegal culture with songs and conversation by Donegal singer/songwriter John McNutt.
This evening is always a great favourite with Donegal community and is an opportunity to sample the different cultures within the modern Donegal landscape.
