Indian Times: Wahzhazhe - An Osage Ballet (Aug 25, 2012)
This week on Indian Times, have you ever thought about putting your tribal history into a ballet? Sound improbable? Well, that’s exactly what a certain group of Osages did and the end product, Wahzhazhe: An Osage Ballet, made its debut in Tulsa and Bartlesville. Co-composer Lou Brock, a member of the Osage Nation and a Senior Researcher for the Osage Museum in Pawhuska, is a quiet unassuming man, whose love of music began at an early age. I spoke with him by phone last week.
