The Museum of Indian Culture is excited to invite the community to a public lecture entitled “Standing Rock - History, Native American Wisdom and What’s Next,” by their new Artist in Residence, Delwin Fiddler Jr., from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, South Dakota, on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at the Museum of Indian Culture. Admission is free. Space is limited, so please call 610-797-2121 or email info@museumofindianculture.org for reservations.

Delwin Fiddler, Jr., is a descendant of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and Elk Head, the grandson of Marie Elk Head. As such, he is in the lineage of the Keepers of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe. Delwin will discuss the ancient wisdom of his people, the relevance of Native American prophecy in present times, and his life’s journey from the reservation in South Dakota and residential American Indian boarding school, to becoming a grass dancer and hoop dancer performing around the world, and a ceremonial leader.

Mr. Fiddler has dedicated his life to protecting Mother Earth as an environmental activist. According to several Native American prophecies, the present time on this earth is considered a critical time in history for the wellbeing of our planet. Mr. Fiddler will discuss American history from the “Indian” perspective and Native American prophecies, such as the “Black Snake” prophecy that the Lakota people believe correlates with the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock, ND. where Delwin spent from July to December 2016 as a “Water Protector” leading ceremonies. Delwin will share insight from his personal experience as a Water Protector and offer inspiration for the present day.

The museum’s executive director, Pat Rivera says, “Delwin is an incredible resource to the museum and the Lehigh Valley and surrounding communities. We are happy to have him here on the evening of September 26th. With Delwin’s expertise, we look forward to expanding our educational programming to include Plains Indian History, Culture and Lifeways. This evening will provide people with a unique opportunity in a small, intimate setting, to hear personal stories that will warm their hearts and inspire them”.

Join us at the Museum of Indian Culture to hear Delwin talk about his amazing life and his vision for community and the environment today.
