About the Event

Looking back seven generations into my own ancestry, i received a clue in a mystery of lost memories… Bring Me The Head Of Osceola illustrates my investigations and discoveries.   From  old motel matchbooks and illustrated childrens books to Walt Whitman  plagiarizing from the diary of Dr Weedon. The legendary story of the  honorable death of Osceola, has a paper trail that can be verified by  the “official Archive". Every story found in popular culture and  academic history is validated by a single diary entry by Dr Fredereick  Weedon, who conveniently left out the fact that he cut off and stole the  head of Osceola, a fact that is also validated and verified by the  Archive. The US government took it even further and also ordered that  Osceola be stripped of all regalia, so he was actually buried as a naked  headless corpse… another unsettling fact that is verified and validated  by the “official archive”.    An even more illuminating discovery  that puts the desecration and decapitation into context, was a piece of  the story that was missing from the “official Archive”,  the Seminole  Tribal History. For hundreds of years the Elders have passed down  stories through generations. This oral tradition was practiced before  and during the time of Osceola and has continued to be repeated up to  today. There Is More To Remember introduces the audience  to a “messenger” in time, passing along the story as it has been told to  him. Bobby Henry, an elder of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, describes a  different series of events that is still honorable but also more  realistic than the over-dramatic scene as described by Weedon in his  diary. Instead, Bobby Henry describes the negotiations, the refusal to  sign and the two gunshots at point blank range. Henry explains, “the  head and the heart, thats what we go by”.
