A Native American elder and an award-winning musician will headline a free evening of music, conversation, and inspiration held January 15 at CARES in Farmington Hills.

“Hindsight. Insight. Foresight. Envisioning a Better Future for All” will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the campus at 27835 Shiawassee Road. CARES provides a food pantry, clothing bank, and other support for local families in need.

“It’s really about helping people understand what does 2020 mean,” said organizer Elaine Grohman, a Farmington Hills resident, author, and energy healer. “What better place to do that than at CARES?”

Grandmother Sasa, whose lineage includes Abenaki, Irish, Scottish, and Japanese heritage, is recognized as a Record Keeper. She will speak about Native American wisdom and deep understanding of the human connection to the earth.

“She will talk about Grandmother Wisdom, what does it mean, and why it is so essential for humanity now,” Grohman said.
