Stickman: John Trudell by Paola Igliori

THE MOST PROFOUND, ESSENTIAL & REAL VOICE IN AMERICA. Musician, Poet, Prophet. His disquieting voice has the power to give ears to the heart. Like most natives raised on a reservation, John Trudells early years were a case of living in America but outside of the American Dream. The realities of poverty & racism instilled a heart-filled contempt for the notions of democracy & equality. The following years were spent searching for his place & purpose. 1969...the Indians of All Nations occupation of Alcatraz. Their national spokesman & national chairman of A.I.M., John Trudell, remained in the public eye & under constant F.B.I. surveillance. 1979...Trudell burns the flag at a Washington demonstration citing American injustice & racism & classism as a desecration of the flag & what it stands for. Less than 24 hours later, his home was burned to the ground killing his wife Tina, her mother, & their three children...it was murder, they were murdered as an act of war... The black period that followed was when Trudell began to find his voice as a poet, eventually merging his words with music in GRAFFITI MAN. His truth beyond poetry, awakens us between the distinction between illusion & reality, & activates the real connection between power: perception & spirit. He was an inspiration to me...There wasnt an untruthful moment in his performance. -Michael Apted, Director, Incident at Ogiala, Thunderheart. Probably the most charismatic speaker Ive ever heard, - Bonnie Raitt. He is a reality check. Justice is a fire that burns inside him. His spirit cries out for him. It makes him dangerous. - Kris Kristofferson. AKA GRAFFITI MAN is the best album of 1986. - Bob Dylan.
