RICHLAND Wash. — A celebration of American Indian, Polynesian and Latin American music and dance will be featured in an upcoming performance at Richland High School.

Living Legends, presented by Brigham Young University, is Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the school’s auditorium, 930 Long Ave., Richland, Wash. Tickets are $8 per person and are available at Far West Books and Gifts, 8508 W. Gage Blvd., Richland, Wash. Although tickets may be available at the door, local coordinators said the event has been very popular in the past and encourage people to purchase tickets in advance.

Organized in 1971, the program was formerly know as Lamanite Generation — with troupes performing all over the world, including Australia, Germany and during the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. The cast is made up of 38 members — all of Latin American, American Indian or Polynesian heritage. Participants are chosen through a rigorous audition process.
