Listen to Seattle

How can current residents of Seattle hear the wisdom of Chief Seattle’s words when industrial sounds drown out the natural world and hide the ancestors inhabiting the land? This program uses the sound of Chief Seattle’s words to create music for a seven piece jazz ensemble. Commissioned by a 4Culture Historic Site Specific Grant, this program premiered at the Duwamish Longhouse and was presented at Town Hall on Indigenous Peoples Day in 2016.
