The Daughter of Dawn opens with White Eagle (White Parker) atop a large rock, scanning the horizon for buffalo. He spots a herd and rides back to camp. Meanwhile at the Kiowa camp, the chief speaks with the tribe’s elders about their devastating food shortage. White returns and tells the chief of “News to make us all rejoice – My eyes have gladdened at the sight of many Buffaloes.” The chief arranges for a hunt, which White, Black Wolf, and about 30 other Indians carry out by circling around and funneling the herd into an ambush. Throughout this initial action, a complicated love triangle develops. Featuring Michael Britt accompanyning live at the console of the Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ.
