UNITY Festival @ Washington Times

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Some performers from the Woodstock era are in the Black Hills this weekend for the Unity Concert.

Organizers say they’re bringing together Native Americans and people who support the attempt to return guardianship of the Black Hills to the Great Sioux Nation. They’re also opposing fracking, uranium mining and the Keystone XL pipeline.

The concert is Saturday and Sunday at the Elk Creek Resort in Piedmont.

Among the planned entertainers: Peter Yarrow, Arlo Guthrie, Buffy Sainte Marie, Paul Winter and Joanne Shenandoah as well as new artists such as Nahko Bear, Xavier Rudd, Supaman, Earth Guardians and 13-year-old Ta’kaiya Blaney.
