A Gathering of People, Wind and Water brought the best of South
Dakotas Native musicians and artwork together at Main Street
Square in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota.
The beat was bumpin Saturday night when Frank Waln, hip
hop artist, friend of all children, and heart throb of the Rosebud
Tribe, got the joint jumpin accompanied by a crowd of kids
in regalia. Waln, who currently lives in Chicago, brought the house
Ridges rock royalty, Julianna Brown Eyes Clifford and Scotti
Clifford of Scatter Their Own, were also on hand and were said to
have given one of their best performances ever. Also on tap was
Pura Fe accompanying Ulali.
The event was taped for a new music video for Waln, and there
were reports that MTV was also taping the event for a documentary
for MTV Global. The event also featured Native artwork by Martin
Red Bear, Sandy Swallow, Gerald Yellowhawk, Roger Broer, Evans Flammond,
