Peace Pipe Pageant

Issac Frazee

Isaac Frazee wrote Kitshi-Manido, a Peace Pipe Pageant. Woreland Castle 29360 Pamoosa Lane, Valley Center CA.

Isaac Frazee was the first documented sketch artist in Laguna Beach in 1878. On October 3, his great grandson, Craig Walker, who lives in Ojai, will present a narrated slide show for us.
Mr. Frazee is best known for creating, in1921, an Indian Peace Pipe Pageant called Kitshi-Manido. The project was to raise money to build an art gallery. The original building has been incorporated into the current Art Museum.
Isaac Frazee and his wife Bettie lived in Laguna from the mid-1920’s. Two houses that they lived in are still standing. Shown here are pictures of the Frazees at the Lombardy Lane house and the one on El Bosque.
The program will be at Wells Fargo Bank, third floor, 7:30 p.m. October 3, 2002.

The poster is circa 1921. It was Payne who brought Hurrell out to Laguna and then got him the gig of 'house sitting' the "mountain cottage" for Mal St. Clair. The photo shows Hurrell on the porch of Mal St. Clair's mountain cottage circa June or July of 1925.
