COTRAIC's Pittsburgh Indian Center at Slippery Rock University once again!

Takaji (greetings) My Relatives

This past Monday the COUNCIL OF THREE RIVERS AMERICAN INDIAN CENTER again participated in the annual Slippery Rock University Native American diversity event.

I was picked up by my friend Russell Simms, the excecutive director of the agency and we drove north to the  college located in the small north-western Pennsylvania community of Slippery Rock to put on the annual presentation which we have offered there for several years now every November. 

As in the case of last year I was asked to be the master of ceremonies . I also offered the audience (mostly students, from the college as well as from local public and private elementary and secundary schools) a presentation of story-telling.

I had the priviledge of introducing some of the finest dance talent of the Pittsburgh-area Native American


Our drum was composed of both local western PA talent and also drummers from the near-by state of Ohio.

A great deal of the music and dance was co-ordinated by Russel's son Michael. My good friend SunBear Coe also added his prodigious talents as well as those of his brother Pete. There was also a wonderful selection of other fancy and traditional dancers from both the Pittsburgh Native community and elsewhere.



Eager audience participation made the event fun for everyone.



The event also included a great display of arts and crafts both for viewing and some for sale.


As usual it was a wonderful pleasure for me to have been part of this effort which is one of the many cultural services that our Indian Center offers to the western Pennsylvania community.
