Fritz Hansen


(Source: Julian Lang, Ararapikva (1994))

Fritz Hansen was renowned as a singer of White Deerskin Dance songs, and a composer of Kick Dance songs. He had two Indian names, Afrîich and Chaakíchhaan. Originally of Ka'tim'îin, he was an authority on the Fix the Earth ceremony, although he never performed as the fatavêenaan, or priest, of the ceremony. Elders today remember Fritz well. All like to tell stories of his little store at Ka'tim'îin where he always gave the kids a piece of candy.
