  • A rare visit from Maori ‘grannies’

    Three Maori tribal elders of the Waitaha nation are visiting the village at the invitation of tribal priest Raymond Ruka, who lives in the Yellow Springs area. While here, the women, who are members of the Waitaha Grandmothers Executive Council, will offer prayers, earth blessings and storytelling, including at the local schools.

    Only Raymond Ruka could have the tribal standing to extend the invitation that has brought three Maori tribal elders all the way from New Zealand to Yellow Springs.

  • Shakespeare, two Mondays a month

    Longtime Shakespeare Study Club members Rae Dewey and Esther Rothman, both now deceased, presented a two-part program, “Fools in Shakespeare,” in 2009, with current member Donna Denman looking on. The group was formed as a women’s club in 1904, and has met continuously since then, still with an all-women membership. Copies of annual program booklets dating back to the club’s earliest years are held in the Antiochiana archives. (Submitted photo; scans courtesy of Antiochiana)

    For 113 years, a members-only group of Yellow Springs women has been meeting to read and discuss the works of Shakespeare and other authors. The women call themselves the Shakespeare Study Club, and that middle word — study — signals the group’s seriousness.
