Kevin Locke is known throughout the world as a visionary Hoop Dancer, a traditional storyteller, the preeminent player of the indigenous Northern Plains flute, cultural ambassador, recording artist, and educator. Kevin is Lakota and Anishinabe. His Lakota name, Tokeya Inajin, means “The First to Arise.” While his early instructions were received from his immediate family and community, Kevin has learned from his extended family in every part of the world many lessons in global citizenship and how we each can draw from our individual heritages ... and therein create a vibrant, evolving civilization embracing and celebrating our collective heritage.
Note to educators: there will be special performances for students offered in association with this performer’s visit. Kevin Locke: http://www.dennosmuseum.org/news/2009/10/kevin-locke-edu.html
