Kwanzaa Workshop: Make and Take Kinara

Kwanzaa is a week-long holiday celebrating African culture, heritage and unity in the US and other nations of the African dispora. Started in 1966 and meaning “first fruits” in Swahili, it recognizes seven Kwanzaa principles of Nguzo Saba: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith. The New Mexico Humanities Council celebrates these seven principles at their Kwanzaa Workshop: Make & Take Kinara (Candelabra), on Saturday, Dec. 14 from noon to 2pm at the Council's office. This free, all-ages event not only teaches how to make a kinara candlelabra, but also explores celebration and observation of the holiday. This workshop is a good way to expand your (event) horizons and learn more about the world we live in, so get tickets by visiting eventbrite.com
