Black Hawk’s View of American History

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. The audience is drawn down the path through time to encounter Black Hawk’s Band on the eve of battle. Storyteller, historian, and Cherokee descendant Brian “Fox” Ellis weaves true history with folklore to create a tapestry of symbolic language, drawing 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. Greenville Chautauqua and Spartanburg County Libraries present this free virtual show March 16 at 7:00pm. To register go to or
