Eagle Drum Girl

August 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

wigwam chi-chemung


This family-friendly event is inspired by the teachings of Elder Dr. Duke Redbird. Young People’s Theatre will perform a reading of Elder Redbird’s play, Eagle Drum Girl, and will feature Elder Redbird himself!

The premise of this inter-generational play is as follows:

“Dan Eagle’s son and daughter-in-law want him to move into seniors’ residence instead of trying to fix the dilapidated shack he calls home. But Old Dan and his granddaughter, Cheyenne have other ideas…”

This event will also include a talk by Elder Redbird, as well as dance and drum performances.
