Apropos the discussion In Salem
as to various pageants and the In
terest that has been aroused in
them, the Oregon Statesman pub
lishes herewith an article from the
Social Progress, ' Chicago, called
The North Winds Sister the In
dian history of -upper Wisconsin
as told in a paper I by Vera Brady
Shipman. t;s t . -
The article gives some idea of
what can be accomplished In the
way of "pageantry in telling his
tory in a way that will be impres
sive and entertaining.!
They call it poetically "The
North Wind's Sister. Ke-wa-de-

reservations at Couderay, Odanah,
and Red Cliff, Wisconsin, taking
part in the costumes of their ancestors-;
- V ' O r i . ; I
It is ithe story. of a vanishing
race. These Indians are enacting
their tribal history, the coming of
the white man and his gradual
pushing them back into the res
ervations set aside for them. There
are 250 white people in the organ
ization," too. , Most of theme are
residents of Bayfield, Washburn
and Ashland, around Chequame
gon Bay. King Louis XIV is rep
resented by Juliah jWachsmuth,
the young son of Bayfield's well
known . lumberman philanthropist.

signs they unite in council.' ' The
pageant sweeps pn with its digni
fied detail. , Gradually a settle
ment is built up from a wigwam
mission to a group of log houses
within the stockade. Thus the
story is told of the life of the Ojib-
way Indian, his meeting with ' the
white man, his early knowledge of
the white man's oGd,- the first use
of firearms, and step by step, the
sorry; fate of the red man in Amer

. From the bow and arrow war
riors of the early days when the
white man first came, to the regi
ment of Indian Tanks at Chateau
Thierry (many who took part In
the pageant were actually in over
seas encounters as Uncle Sam s
soldiers) a fine and consistent pic
ture of the development of the In
dian is given. The scenic work
was done by Kirk Davies, an artist
who was general manager of the I
show: the music was rendered by
the 103th Cavalry band of Eau
Claire under the direction of Theo
dore Stelnmets- But the "real
man behind the gun who through
all the months of labor gathered
the red and white men and wom
en into a picture which is a credit
to the state of Wisconsin and to
America, I is the .pageant director
who staged the entire show, Ken

and Milwaukee.

moments in our busy , days t and

of the. pioneers : who . struggled !
through every hardship that they
might seek a new empire in a new
world? The first annual Indian
Pageant, at (iBayfleld; Wisconsin.
has been,. in spite of its crudity.
an artistic success. The three
day's pageant repeated seven times
has given a number of America's
touVlsts a chance to learn authen-l
tic facts about the red man. The
pages of traditional history are as I
yet "but lightly touched. There
are many picturesque " features
still to be incorporated In the pag
eant '. Some day Americans will
be making an annual pilgrimage
to Lake . Superior's edge, to visit
