The 26th annual Revive the Beauty Way Tour will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, at the North Fork Grange, 131 Dutch Creek Road in Junction City.

It will be a night of inspiration, music, and community to benefit the elders and families of Big Mountain, Ariz. Joining Clan Dyken and co-sponsoring the event is the RXR band, bringing original Psy-Rock into the mix. Mountain Marketplace will be providing a meal for sale. There is a silent auction, and information about Big Mountain and Clan Dyken’s Thanksgiving supply run.

The cost is $10 at the door. Kids 12 and under get in free.

Since 1991 the family band Clan Dyken has been traveling to the Big Mountain/Black Mesa region of the Dine’ (Navajo) Nation to bring firewood and labor to elders and families. These Earth defenders have been resisting forced relocation since 1974 due to their opposition to the world’s largest coal strip mine. Clan Dyken is a part of an extended network of activists from around the globe who support the original people of Turtle Island.

To raise funds for the journey and awareness of the issue, Clan Dyken has been setting out on the annual Revive the Beauty Way Tour through the West Coast of the United States for 26 years.

The event is sponsored by RXR Studios, Hearth Fire International, Mountain Marketplace and the North Fork Grange.
