Hiawatha on stage
19 November 2018 | Education
This is the third of 22 chapters from a poem about the great American Indian leader and peace carrier Hiawatha, who lived in the 18th century. It is the story of Hiawatha's upbringing by his grandmother who shapes his attitude towards nature and mankind.
This piece of literature was transformed into a heart touching composition by Ira B. Wilson in 1920.
Dressed in Indian painted shirts and headdresses with feathers and directed by Barbara Stauffer Meier, the learners presented the composition written for two singing voices and accompanied by piano.
