Tatanka Ohitika (“Strong Buffalo”) is a Dakota elder and poet from the Sisseton- Wahpeton Oyate. He is a decorated Marine Corps Vietnam Veteran and American Indian Movement (AIM) activist who has traveled around the world performing his work, collecting a million stories and writing a “zillion” poems, advocating for indigenous peoples across the globe. His trusty sidekick, The Custard Kid, is a quickdraw music magician who colors the edges of their live poetry with layers of spontaneous and playful abandon. Together, they join forces to deliver much needed love medicine to a world in need, with wise words and dirty grooves, accompanied by psychedelic live projections and interspersed with thoughtful conversation. Joined by several other special guest artists, The Buffalo Show showcases important work by native artists seeking to restore balance to our world.
The Buffalo Show is co-presented by Oyate Hotanin (“Voice of the People”), Pangea World Theater, Wavelets Creative, and Lake Street Arts.
