Who We Are
Pronounce it just as it looks:
"QUIT' - TA - PA - HILL' - A"
Many pipe bands are named for bodies of water
"Quittapahilla" is an Algonquin
Native-American name for a small stream in our area
Highland troops from Scotland were sent
here to protect Colonials during the "French and Indian
War". The Highlanders gained the respect of the Native Americans
for the Highlanders' "Indian-like" bravery, simple lifestyle, and
fighting abilities. "Pontiac's Rebellion" ended at the
battle of Bushy Run in western Pennsylvania, where the "42nd
Highlanders, The Royal Highland Regiment, The Black Watch" played a role. Our goal is to emulate the Black Watch in music and
- In 1998 our band took part in the dedication
ceremonies at the Lebanon Valley College campus in Annville, at which a
bronze statue of the Native American princess, "Cuewe Pehelle"
(Quittapahilla) was unveiled.
Once heard or read, our name is not easily forgotten.
We are proud to bear the name:
