Seattle Peace Chorus Presents People of the Drum @ Duwamish Tribal Services
Nov 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

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.

Featured Artists
• 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

Tickets available online at Brown Paper Tickets

Thank you for your contribution and your support. Our goals of promoting peace and justice and making connections with justice-minded people of our Seattle community, our country, and the world is enhanced by your support both in attendance at our concerts and financially.

Your ticket for Sunday or Saturday is good for only the given date and venue. Seating is limited, so get your tickets as soon as possible from a chorus member, or on Brown Paper Tickets.

Promised Land Documentary @ Highland Park Improvement Club
Jan 24 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) presents a special screening of Promised Land, a social justice documentary on the Duwamish and Chinook tribes, their fight for restoration, and the federal recognition process’s stance toward indigenous sovereignty today.

Doors open at 7PM for appetizers, drinks, and socializing, with the film starting at 8PM. A representative from the Duwamish Tribe and also the filmmaker will be in attendance to introduce the film and to lead discussion afterward.

$10 donation at the door, half of which will be given toward the Tribes’ fight for restoration and recognition.

From the filmmakers:

Promised Land is an award-winning social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they’ve long been denied. In following their story, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty.

• Please Register Here: https://seattle.greencitypartnerships.org/event/17231/
HAVE A LARGE GROUP? Contact Lisa McGinty: lmcginty206@gmail.com

• 9 am to noon

• Meet near the NORTH parking lot Kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St). If you miss us at 9am, check the kiosk map to see where we’re working or call Lisa: 248.506.7155

• Dress in NW layers to stay cool/warm and dry. We suggest long sleeves and pants year-round to protect from scratches AND a water bottle to keep hydrated. Wear closed-toe, sturdy shoes or boots. PLEASE bring garden gloves and your favorite tool, if you have them. We will have some extra tools and gloves to borrow. Kids welcome!

DID YOU KNOW? The fabulous and fun FLiP crew meets the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month. Rain never stops us, but if there are high wind warnings, it’s not safe to be in the woods and we’ll need to cancel.
