Drew will be signing posters (free) at PANHE Event in San Clemente from 1:00 – 2:30 on Sunday, April 21, 2013.

PANHE is a sacred Native American land in San Clemente.  Every year during Earth Day, there is a Panhe Earth Day Celebration held at the San Mateo Campground in San Clemente.

Panhe, which translates to “place by the water,” is an ancient Acjachemen village whose site is estimated to be about 9,500 years old. PANHE continues to be used as both a spiritual and ceremonial site.

Each year during Panhe Celebration, the natives from this land come together to share their ancient stories with the public, with the goal to inspire a love of the land and the desire to protect it, in everyone.

In 2011, Drew painted his rendition of Panhe after attending the awesome event.  Once again this year, the San Onofre Foundation, who puts on the Panhe Celebration, is using the artwork for their posters and advertisements.
