Thomas Walker on lute, 8:00 pm, August 7


                       Thomas Walker


Dacotah Tipis Habitat for Humanity at Crow Creek Reservation


                       Dacotah Tipis – Habitat for Humanity






Thomas Walker Jr., started classical guitar lessons at age 10 and a couple years later acquired an interest in the 12-string guitar stylings of Leo Kottke.  After college, he studied jazz guitar independently, and became increasingly fascinated with early music.  He bought his first lute in 1992. Since then, Thomas has performed with Ensemble Polaris, Consortium Carissimi (stateside), the Rose Ensemble, and various members of the Lyra Baroque. Tickets can be purchased online at, or at the door: $15 adult, $10 student.





Olivet Congregational church will again go to the Crow Creek Reservation for its annual build with Dacotah Tipis Habitat. We invite you to join us. The trip starts after worship on August 14 and continues through August 20. Work includes new construction, home repairs and other service projects beginning Monday and through Friday morning.

While we are there we participate in cross cultural experiences with these people, descendants of our first Minnesotans. They arrived here in 1863 after they were banned from Minnesota following their deadly internment below Fort Snelling. Our trip concludes with their annual Pow Wow, which draws people from Canada to Southern California.

We are housed in a comfortable visitor's center in Fort Thompson, SD. Fort Thompson is at the center of the reservation and part of the poorest county in the US.
