Native American Day: Billy Crowbeak Faluski (Flute) and John Burke as Captain Wolf
Join Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) as it honors Native Americans. Begin the afternoon with Valley City-based flutist Billy Crowbeak Faluski as he showcases some of his Native American-style flutes, which he handcrafts from cedar, cherry, poplar and sycamore. He will then demonstrate, performing improvisations in the style the instruments were intended to play. Primitive in nature, Faluski takes listeners to a subliminal place as he plays from the heart.
Next, enjoy Medina historian John Burke portray Captain Wolf, a Lenape/Delaware Indian who served under General William Henry Harrison and lived in his village on Chippewa Lake in Medina County. Woodland Indian life and culture with local historical references will be part of this presentation.
