Imagine sitting around a campfire with Black Hawk, war chief and leader of the Sauk tribe listening to the stories of creation and legends of his grandfathers. Storyteller and historian Brian “Fox” Ellis begins the program with his family’s connection to the Trail of Tears and the forced removal of the Cherokee Nation from their ancestral homeland in the Carolinas.

The audience is drawn down the path through time to encounter Black Hawk's Band on the eve of battle. Weaving true history with folklore to create a tapestry of symbolic language story teller and historian and Cherokee descendant, Brian "Fox" Ellis, draws the audience into Black Hawk's world with traditional chants and drumming sounds to celebrate the First Nations of this land and to begin to see the world through Native eyes.


The event is Free and will feature audience Q/A.
