Hartwick Presents ‘Native American Music and Culture’

October 7, 2010

On Friday, October 15, Paul Ghost Horse will present "Native American Music and Culture," a discussion and performance, at 7:00 p.m. in the Celebration Room of Shineman Chapel House on the Hartwick College campus.

This event will mark Ghost Horse's fifth visit to Hartwick College. A Lakota teacher, historian, and musician, Paul Ghost Horse was taught the Natural Way of his family and continues to share his knowledge with the next generation.

He has spent his life trying to live a spiritual tradition, often in conflict with the dominant culture's values. He was chosen as spiritual head of Sungleska, a national organization of multi-racial families who strive to live a Native Spiritual lifeway.

He will be presenting with the assistance of Billy Brown Bear Martinson of North Carolina.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Music, the Arts and Humanities Division, and the NEH Visiting Professorship in the Humanities. For information, call Professor of English Robert Bensen at 607-431-4902.
