Per Don Rhodes, Editor, The Morris Communicator – About five years ago, the former Augusta mayor, Bob Young met with me to see how he could get more visitors to the Phinizy Swamp nature site. I suggested a music festival that incorporated native American lore. I then hooked up Bob and me and Okefenokee Joe over lunch to talk about it, and Joe ended up bringing in Chipa to be the organizer. He was such a joy to know over the past four or five years and he leaves behind a lot of friends in Augusta and North Augusta who really loved him and respected him.
Here is an article I did that was printed in today’s edition of The Augusta Chronicle and took up about a third on one of the obituary pages. Prayers are going out to Chipa’s family and friends in their time of sorrow.
Chipa Lone Eagle Wolfe, 62, of Jasper, Ga., died Saturday at his residence.
There are no local services scheduled.
For the past four years, Wolfe was the organizer and host of the Oka’Chaffa Indian Festival & Pow Wow each fall.
It was held for two years at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park and then moved to New Savannah Bluff Lock & Dam Park north of Augusta Regional Airport.
More than 7,000 people attending the festival each year found Native American dances, colorful authentic costumes, tribal chants and drum beatings, native foods, a living Tipi village and a buffalo named Thunder.
Wolfe co-founded the festival in 2012 with naturalist Okefenokee Joe (also known as country songwriter and recording artist Dick Flood) and former Augusta Mayor Bob Young.
“We are really excited about creating this festival in Augusta,” Wolfe said just before the first one. “This will be a fun weekend for Augusta-area residents to learn about the people who lived here before Gen. (James Edward) Oglethorpe and all the other folks came here. We hope our visitors leave with a better understanding of the diversity and rich ties with local native peoples that were here not that long ago.”
Last July, Wolfe helped the North Augusta Arts & Heritage Center celebrate its sixth anniversary with Native American music, dances and his educational stories.
Last October, he was back at New Savannah Bluff Lock & Dam Park as host of the fourth annual Oka’Chaffa Indian Festival & Pow Wow. The future of the festival remains in limbo because Wolfe was the spark plug who made it happen.
Part-Cherokee, Wolfe has been putting on powwows and Indian festivals for 20 years with his Rolling Thunder Enterprises.
He has served as the emcee of his festivals and kept spectators entertained with his stories of Native American life and the many native peoples through centuries who served in America’s military forces, including the Navajo Code Talkers.
Wolfe also was the founder of the Cherokee County Indian Festival. His obituary noted that he enjoyed riding horses and motorcycles, catching snakes, riding bulls and rescuing animals.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Bob Mincey and Jackie Peters. Survivors include his wife, Ruby Wolfe; his father figure, Larry Giles; children, Joshua A. Krumnaker and Cecilia W.R. Wolf; sister, Cherokee Rose Haider; brothers, Mike Satterfield and Butch Satterfield; a niece; a nephew; and one grandchild.
This event will help raise support for Sgt. Rick Hales of the Pickens Sheriff’s Office as he continues to recover from injuries he received in an accident last month. There will be live entertainment on the JeepFest Stage during Off-roading For Rick on April 30th!
Please do all that you can to join us and have a great time raising support for one of ours!
Pickens County Deputy Sgt. Rick Hales was able to stand yesterday, one month after a bad accident and present his son with a new badge and promotion in his own law enforcement career. Hales was injured last month in a rollover accident but is improving daily with physical therapy. Sheriff Donnie Craig was on-hand to lend his support for the family. We are very proud to support such an outstanding agency. http://www.wsbtv.com/…/proud-father-stands-for-th…/161331163
Posted on Facebook Per Paul D Poore – Jasper Merchants Association: I want to applaud Matthew Dunn of Ball Ground for purchasing the house located at 68 South Main Street and finally renovating the place instead of tearing down a piece of history in Downtown Jasper. How many of you know that this house was built in 1915. That’s right it is 100 years old. The house has sat vacant for many years and had become home to some very cute, but mean ground hogs. It is great to see someone take an interest in the history of buildings and keep them instead of tearing them down. (sometimes posts like this can get a ‘lively’ conversation going…
Rebeccah Francine Roberts Yaya Yaya Yaya!!!

Jeff Brown Thank God. I was wondering what was going on. So VERY glad it is being restored. Now….what about the Depot? If Jasper wants to let it rot because of “asbestos” or whatever….Canton wants it smile emoticon

Timothy A Ray Might as well tell Canton to come get it. Canton is a city that cares about their future. Jasper is in a stagnated state as far as growth and tourism goes. With our hillbilly politics, Everything is going to pass Jasper by.

Timothy A Ray Jasper can’t work with D.O.T. to get highway 53 widened from highway 515. So most people passing by don’t even know that Main Street Jasper even exists. Then you have the county government, who is constantly butting heads with Jasper government. Not working together for a common goal as they should be.

Paul D Poore
Paul D Poore I’d like to see it redone and used as a stepping off point for a new rail line that runs between Ball Ground, Tate, Jasper, Ellijay and Blue Ridge. With the train stop in Tate giving tours of the recently moved depot there and connecting tours to the Tate House. Then the stop in Jasper gives people the chance to visit Downtown and the Historic Woodbridge Inn. Then up to Ellijay and on to Blue Ridge.

Jeff Brown Great idea Paul!! Love it. Canton lost their depot years ago…much like Blue Ridge…Blue Ridge moved one to them smile emoticon. I hope Jasper doesn’t let this one slip.

Paul D Poore It would take a lot of conversations between the cities and counties to get something like this off the ground. I know they store the Blue Ridge train down here during the winter months. I don’t see why some sort of tourism plan couldn’t be put together to bring all of us together and make it feasible. It would most certainly be at least some sort of attraction for Jasper and the cities along the rail line in Pickens. (Tate, Jasper, Talking Rock).
