Biography

Buddy Red Bow is a Native American musical legend whose memory often evokes emotional responses from fans of this genre. He was not the first to take a solidly Anglo form of musical expression -- the folk protest song and country & western music -- and use it to express the concerns of the Indian nations. Surely he had learned from previous masters such as Peter La Farge, Floyd Westerman, and Buffy Saint-Marie, yet Red Bow was somehow a voice of a new generation, a reality confirmed by actions as well as songs. He is remembered not only as a musician, but as a Lakota activist in on the Red Power movement early on, one of the first to become involved in the Ghost Dance movement, and so on. His songs seem to have taken root in the hearts of his fans in a special way, although it goes hand in hand with a feeling that in the end he somehow did not live up to his potential.
