SALISBURY — Chief Fleming “Holy Eagle” Otey says he is “calling all Indians,” looking for volunteers to join him in being part of the background and production of “In God’s Own Country.”

The show will have its North America debut Thursday night at the Meroney Theater.

“The bottom line is,” Otey said, “we need about six more.”

He said young and old are welcome and, no, you don’t have to be a Native American.

Costumes will be provided. The play has positions for drummers, dancers and crowd scenes.

If interested, contact Otey at 704-640-0242 or Piedmont Players at 704-633-5174. Rehearsals are nightly at 7.

Native American Month will be celebrated at the Hefner VA Medical Center at 11:30 a.m. Nov. 2, Otey also reported.
