Ya' Hear Jimi?


In the depth of his genius and originality the gem of his words, "When the power of love is greater than the love of power the world will know peace." came forth like the hot waters of geysers in the lands the Americans stole from the Nez Perce, the Absaroka and others to establish the worlds' first national park: Yellowstone.

Jimi Hendrix being a Black Indian meant a great deal to Native people who knew this and to Black Indians who understood the danger of being or admitting to being a mixed breed in those days... It took great commitment to his art to free himself as the musical conduit, and others in the 1960's collective struggles to change lives, and to change the world as they knew it. Jimi Hendrix represents many things. In 2012 he is strange because the concept of freedom he lived and embodied then does not live in the current phenomenon of today's dictatorial patriotism stilted in an idea of freedom in the narrow spheres of one class of people. – Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 5/23/12
