Come to the next Hayfork Cooperative meeting Tuesday May 17th for a celebration of the music of the ancestors of this place, both of the indigenous and immigrant peoples. This will begin at 6:30 pm at Northern Delights Coffeehouse at 7091 State Highway 3 in Hayfork with the Manzanita Chamber Ensemble performing. The ensemble is three musicians--two recorder players, and a cellist-- and 6 singers presenting music from 15th and 16th century Europe. All of these performers are from Trinity County and the cellist, Rolayne Bashaw, is their spokesperson and is from Hayfork. Although they are not charging for their concert, donations to help with travel and other expenses will be very appreciated.
The Trinity Drummers will then drum and sing old Wintu songs, as a fundraiser for the Wintu Educational & Cultural Council. Tammy Russel will read a few old Wintu legendary, parable stories. Some members of the local Wintu band, the Nor El Muk, will then host a questions and answer session. So bring your questions and learn more about life here before the immigrants arrived.
A local wild edible mushroom expert, Adrien Key, will bring tasty mushrooms from our forests to sell with 100% of the proceeds going to the Wintu Educational and Cultural Council. Lana Craig will be donating a large number of fine books about Native Americans to the Hayfork Community in honor of the Nor El Muk. So come to enjoy the evening and give to the Wintu Educational and Cultural Council.
