9.19.12 For the fifth installment of Clattering Loom, the curators initially chose a phrase whose etymology was revealed to be of questionable verifiability. The term “It is a good day to die” has been attached to more than one Native American tribe, though it appears that while the phrase is ubiquitously associated with being of a Native American language derivation, this is simply not the case. In the end, the curators asked the contributors to perform pieces in the spirit of the phrase as it exists in english, for a lovely evening of readings and music at the Red Poppy Arthouse.
A clarification by the curators:
