All are invited to attend the second annual Good Medicine Indigenous Wellness Celebration on Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Riverfront Park in Reading. Learn about Native American approaches to health and wellness, create art, engage with the river, and connect with local nonprofit and healthcare resources. The event will kick off with a cleanup of Riverfront Park at 9 a.m.

We’ll hear from various speakers throughout the day to teach us about the history and importance of our beloved Schuylkill River and how our health is intricately connected to the health of our land and water. Reading Public Library will be offering Indigenous storytimes throughout the event.

Enjoy free food, check out some cooking demos, take advantage of free health screenings, create some art, and learn some Native American social dances. Try some kayaking on the Schuylkill River courtesy of Take It Outdoors. This family-friendly event is free and open to all, and it will be held rain or shine. More information can be found at www.widoktadwen.org.
