The Wolf and the Good Woodsman

On the evening of December 16 we will celebrate our annual holiday service. The Religious Education program has prepared a holiday play of the folk-story "The Wolf and the Good Woodsman." Campus Minister David Saetre will share reflections of the season. In addition, there will be congregational singing of traditional carols and special music by pianist Joni Chapman. The CUUF string ensemble will accompany our traditional walk through the spiral of greenery. The service will close with a candlelight carol followed by fellowship and refreshments. We hope you will join us for this special service.

Native American Spirituality and the Changing Seasons

James E. Pete, whose Anishinaabe name is Guyaushk (Seagull) is a member of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin, is from the Eagle Clan, has two sons, and seven grandchildren. He currently serves as the Director of the Native American and Indigenous Culture Center for Northland College.

Jim will share teachings he learned from Tribal Elders about the relationship between spirituality and the natural settings of the four seasons. Within a traditional sense of many Tribal Communities, the teachings from Tribal Elders has been such an importance aspect, to the survival from many challenges for thousands of years.

Jim has a Doctorate in Business Administration and his doctoral project utilized these teachings, in the concentration and encouragement on the integration of traditional beliefs and philosophies, into the modern day Tribal Organization.
