Red Eagle Soaring Native Youth Theater is staging a free musical re-enactment of the 1970 Bernie Whitebear-lead takeover of Fort Lawton that resulted in the creation of Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, to be performed at 3PM on Sunday, March 28th at Daybreak Star. The play will be part of a larger celebration of the takeover’s 40th anniversary and Bernie Whitebear’s contributions to the struggle for Native rights, beginning at 1PM with an open mike, and continuing after the RES performance with a community potluck dinner (UIAT will provide salmon).
Please join us in celebrating Bernie, Daybreak Star, and Indian unity. RES youth have been working hard with teaching artists Storme Webber, Hannah Franklin, Star Nayea, Victor Pascual, and Andrew Morrison to create a worthy tribute to the people, events and spirit of 1970.
Red Eagle Soaring respectfully acknowledges the support of the City of Seattle, 4Culture, the Tulalip Tribe, the Washington State Arts Commission, and the many private individuals who make our work possible. Thank you!
