College film will tell story of 'lost ones' buried in Carlisle

The tale of the Lipan Apache American Indian band's "lost ones" buried in Carlisle will unroll on film next week when Dickinson College debuts a 42-minute film detailing their reintroduction into the band's oral history.

In May members of the Lipan Apache band traveled to Carlisle to perform a prayer ceremony at Jack Mather's grave. Mather and his sister were taken from the band on the U.S.-Mexican border in 1877 and never returned to their birthplace. The Lipan Apache referred to them as a "lost ones" until the May ceremony.

A guest professor at Dickinson College, Jacqueline Fear-Segal, linked the Lipan Apache band with the graves of Mather and his sister, Kesetta Roosevelt, as well as Roosevelt's son, Richard Kaseeta. Kaseeta, is buried in Cumberland Valley Memorial Gardens at the West Edge of Carlisle and Roosevelt is buried in southeastern Pennsylvania

The 42-minute film, "The Lost Ones: Long Journey Home," by Dickinson professor Susan Rose and 2009 Dickinson graduate Manuel Saralegui, will debut Sept. 24 at 4:30 p.m. in room 235 of Dickinson College's Weiss Center on West High Street between West and South College Streets in Carlisle. It is free and open to the public.
