About this Item


  • Lakota John and Kin Concert


  • Lakota John and Kin perform blues music with a Native American twist. The group includes young musician Lakota John Locklear and members of his family who belong to the Lakota/Tuscarora and Lumbee Nations of South Dakota and North Carolina. The Lumbee Nation is the largest Native American tribe east of the Mississippi and is a recognized tribe by the state of North Carolina, although it has gained only partial Federal recognition. Lakota John looks to have Native Americans recognized for their long overlooked but important contributions to the blues tradition.
