Ghostdancers Threnody for Wounded Knee by : James Barnes
“Ghostdancers” is a reflective tone poem based on the tragic story of the Piaute Medicine Man named Wovoka and his development of the “Ghost Dance;” which many Plains Indians adopted in the late 19th Century in a desperate effort to call their ancestors back from the dead to help them repel the massic immigration of white settlers to the Great Plains; whose rapid influx disrupted the Plains Indians food sources. The tragic history of the “Ghost Dance” culminated during the Wounded Knee Massacre; which has become infamous as the last hostile act between Native Americans and the United States Government. “Ghostdancers” was commissioned by David Fedele for the University of Kansas Flute Choir.
