                                    Triptych Community Quilt: Deadline for Photo Submissions     

        • Please email your photos of at least two hands from two different people. Send the photos in low resolution format to cbm0301@gamil.com/.
        • These photos will be used for the quilt that CHARAC and the    Hayward Piecemakers are making for the "Gimiwaanji'idimin-  We all gather together" Art Exhibit to be held at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College on April 5 from 6-8 pm and April 6 from 8 am-4:30 pm in the LCOOCC Cultural Center.  This art exhibit is an extension of The Public Theater of New York's National Mobile Unit project that brought professional New York actors to LCOOOC on Oct. 23 to perform the Pulitzer Prize Winning play "Sweat", a story of blue-collar workers struggling in a rust belt city under the throws of globalization.                                     
        • One other creative endeavor that will be on exhibit in April        will be an original work of art inspired by a local Northland      Story.  Nearly 30 recorded stories have been collected and        local artists - painters, sculptures, musicians or writers - are        being invited to interpret a synopsis of one into an original        work of art.  Artists are asked to notify Dayle Quigley which    story synopsis they have chosen to interpret by emailing              Dayle_Quigley@hotmail.com. Due date TBA. 


Story Synopsis:

1. Feeling like a member of the community after dancing at an          Honor the Earth Pow Wow, experiencing the heavy drum beat      and rainfall with seven eagle overhead.

                                      2. Being stopped by the police and friends hearing about it                                                      over the scanner.

                                      3. Moving away and then moving back and then realizing this                                                was home, the place to bloom.

                                      4. Two large bears walk feet way from a person in the woods                                                  paying him no mind. 

                                      5. A queen contest where one of the contestants fillets a                                                          musky and forgets the entrails in the gym.

                                      6. Felt like a member of the community once they realized                                                      the way to honor your culture is to give back for the                                                            greater good of the community.

                                       7. Interesting story about the community--the white pines in                                                   our area come from South Carolina.  Spent their vacation                                                   one year traveling the path of the white pines from South                                                   Carolina to Hayward after the Ice Age.

                                       8. First Job after graduating from the university with a                                                             Master's Degree and moved here to start work in the                                                           LCOOC Science Department - one classroom for the                                                           entire college and they did their labs in the parking lot.

                                       9. Felt like a member of the community--was taken to jail                                                       for shooting a deer out of season. Their grandmother                                                           had to come and bail them out.

                                      10. Felt like a member of the community--once they started                                                      being invited to weddings and funerals.

                                      11. Best part of the community--"best part of moving here                                                        are the people they have met."

                                      12. Interesting story about the community--Used to bring                                                          their 10 year old to work with them in the Emergency                                                          Room. The child just roamed the halls for the day.
