The five-day conference will feature workshops, vendors and nightly concerts by the biggest names in Native American flute music. Artists scheduled to appear include Bill Miller, Michael Graham Allen, Peter Phippen and Kevin Locke. Nakai will play Saturday, July 12.
"I deal primarily with life experiences and going to other communities and saying, 'My culture is like yours,' " Nakai said of his international travels. "When you get back down to earth-based thinking, we're all very similar."
