INVITES YOU TO THE
Friday, January 11th, 7pm
Chief Sagwitch shared a tradition of peaceful advocacy with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. In spite of many opportunities for a different response, Chief Sagwitch always encouraged peace.
"I have been intimately acquainted with the white man from my childhood, and I appeal to any white man, when have I played false with him? Whom have I killed or even threatened to kill? I have ever been an advocate for peace. I abhor war to-day. I want peace. I sue for peace to-day. I want to be at peace with all men . . . The white man roams the mountains all over, hunting for the gold and silver that belong to the Indian until he sells the land. When have I interfered with him? The railroads pass through my country and have scared the game all away. Still I have made no objection to this, nor do I want to. I want all men to have the privelage [sic] of doing as they like, undisturbed, and make all the money they can, and all I want is peace and to be allowed to make a farm in a small, very small, portion of the country I have always lived in and still want to live in."
Chief Sagwitch, August 31, 1875
Also performing for the event will be an interfaith gospel choir led by Buffy Evans of the First Presbyterian Church of Logan. Musical numbers may include:
The Huron Carol - Written by Jean de Brebeuf, arranged by Michael J. Oczko. This is a Canadian Christmas Hymn written by a missionary living among the Huron people near Lake Ontario in 1643. It will be accompanied by Brandon Clayton on organ.
Earth Drum Dance - This arrangement by Will Schmid is a celebration of the Earth and its beauty. It contains the Navajo Enemy Way Song, "Yo-shi nai," a social dance meaning "Come and dance." The Enemy Way is a healing ceremony originally for warriors returning from a foreign war. The round, "I Walk In Beauty," is based on a Navajo text and uses a traditional melody. This will be accompanied by drum (Chandler Poulson) and recorders or synthesizer by keyboardist by Karen Tew.
Shoshone Love Song (The Heart's Friend) - Based on a traditional Native American poem, this popular choral piece is arranged by Roger Emerson. Pianist is Karen Tew.
Praise His Holy Name - Written by Keith Hampton, this is a rousing Gospel Style piece that will feature Chandler Poulsen on drums and Karen Tew on piano.
Kathy Chudoba represents St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church on CCC and is the chairperson for this event with help from Dan Judd and Richard West, also from the CCC.
