The Seattle Peace Chorus is proud to present our up-coming concert People of the Drum, in honor of Native Americans and their contributions to our nation, community, and environment. We wish to express our solidarity with them and with their struggle for identity and cultural preservation. Our concert program represents a collaboration with our Native American communities and features music composed by Frederick N. West, the director of the Seattle Peace Chorus. Native American singers, drummers, story tellers, and tribal elders will be an integral part of our concert.
Native American tribes in the United States have struggled for years to uphold treaties that protect their rights to fishing, hunting, and preservation of their sacred grounds. This work will include poetic renderings of these and other legacies, including the Navajo prayer “Beauty before us, beauty behind us, we walk in beauty; it is finished in beauty.”
We present this concert at two Native American sites in Seattle with limited seating: Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, and the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center.
• Frederick N. West, Director Seattle Peace Chorus and composer of the musical program
• Sondra Segundo, Haida singer
• Johnny Moses, Tulalip storyteller
• Kevin Locke, Lakota hoop dancer, story teller, and Native American flute expert (Duwamish Longhouse only)
• Professional chamber orchestra
• Edie Loyer Nelson, Duwamish tribal elder

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek at Camp Long.
Longfellow Creek is a major waterway in West Seattle. It is also a little piece of the wild in the middle of the city. Coho salmon migrate up this waterway; beavers build dams and lodges on this creek; owls hunt for food along this artery. Explore a portion of this urban wilderness with a Seattle Urban Nature Guide. Look for seasonal changes and get to know some of your wild neighbors.
Be prepared to do some hiking over uneven terrain on this program.
Ages 6 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Everyone attending the program must be registered.
