Sunflower Journeys Program 1302
Wind People Pageant, Council Grove: Sunflower Journeys presents excerpts from a history pageant called Voices of the Wind People. Staged along the banks of the Neosho River in Council Grove, this event depicts the interaction between the Kanza (Kaw) Tribe and the early settlers who eventually displaced them from their reservation here. The Kaw Tribe in Oklahoma: Today, the Kaw Tribe maintains its headquarters in Kaw City, Oklahoma, and supports tribal members who reside in the surrounding communities. Sunflower Journeys visits this region of north central Oklahoma and sees how the Kaw have established cultural institutions, social services and business enterprises here. Ad Astra Sculpture: Sunflower Journeys reviews an on-going project attempting to place a large statue of a Kaw warrior high atop the state capitol in Topeka. Referred to as Ad Astra, the statue has been designed by Salina artist Richard Bergen.
