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. Strong Buffalo join forces with host Leech Laker Al Gross, to deliver much needed love medicine to a world in need, with wise words and dirty grooves, 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.
May will feature Special Guest David Huckfelt (The Pines)
In the fall of 2017, David Huckfelt left behind the familiar—the comfort of his home in Minneapolis; the camaraderie of his critically acclaimed band, The Pines; the luxuries of heat, hot water, and electricity—and relocated to Isle Royale, America’s most remote national park. Six hours off the Superior coast of Michigan, Isle Royale is the largest island in the world’s largest freshwater lake, an isolated stretch of wilderness seemingly forgotten by the 20th century (to say nothing of the 21st). There, as an Artist In Residence selected by the National Park Service, Huckfelt spent ten hours a day for two straight weeks writing in solitude, channeling the mysterious and lonesome island’s spirits into his stunning debut solo album, "Stranger Angels," due out Fall 2018.
