The MonDak Heritage Center announces Song of the Dawn Priests: A History of the Crow People by Franco Littlelight on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. at the MonDak Heritage Center, 120 3rd Ave SE, Sidney. This is the first program in the Cultures of Montana series as part of Hometown Humanities! The history of the Crow People is closely tied to the Montana, Wyoming, Northern Colorado, and Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan landscape. Franco shares this history through storytelling, song, poetry, music, and images. Using oral traditions, anthropology research, and archaeological perspectives the origin story of the Crow People unfolds from the mythic wellspring to the separation from the Sioux and Hidatsa, from life along the Yellowstone to the heartbreaking separation from the Yellowstone valley marking the end of the Buffalo Days. The program is FREE and open to the public! Light refreshments provided. Franco will also present at area schools. Sponsored by Humanities Montana, an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
