Winter Hawk drummers came from northern Indiana on the summer solstice. Storms and full moon were both on their way to Delphi, on Monday June 20. We took shelter at the blockhouse on the Mears farm. Meanings of songs shared filled our circle. Dedication of the bison at Freedom Bridge will wait for another full moon.

Make Music Day in Delphi?
Hazel Zettee and Howie Clark are often seen at the monthly Brookston Jam.
Before and after the evening celebration at Carroll County's new Bicentennial Park, "Fete de la Musique," (Make Music Day) welcomes singers and musicians worldwide to play freely all day, wherever people welcome music (www.fetedelamusique.de/en). It started in France in 1982; now 5,000 people play worldwide.
On Monday, June 20 from 4-6 p.m. Howie Clark will play banjo and guitar with Brookston Jam friends at Stone House restaurant, 117 East Main Street, in Delphi, a block from the Courthouse. Celebration on the land begins at 6:30. See www.bicentennialpark.net.
Invitations to play are a worldwide phenomenon since first proposed by the Minster of Culture, Jack Lang in France in 1981 and begun as a tradition in 1982.
"Lenaswa," a Bison sculpture with a Myaamia name was unveiled in Lafayette.
"Lenaswa," a Bison sculpture with a Myaamia name was unveiled on Main Street in Lafayette for Indiana's Bicentennial. Depictions on each side are inspired by the work of George Winter in 1837. His beautifully written journal is housed at the Tippecanoe County Historical Association.
Work by artists Sunny Miller & Linda Vanderkolk, and the purchase of the sculpture are sponsored by Undercover Storage, 2740 North Ninth Street, in Lafayette. Wnen installed at that location, people traveling to Prophetstown State Park, to the Feast of the Hunter's Moon at Fort Ouiatenon, or the Indian Fiddlers' Gathering in Battleground, may want to stop and take a closer look.
