Floyd Red Crow Westerman Tribute

We came together to honor and remember, Floyd Red Crow Westerman.

It was November 13, 2008, in San Francisco at the Palace of Fine Arts during the American Indian Film Festival.

The concert was all about Floyd, his music, friends, how he lived his life and how he inspirited others to live theirs.

Bonnie Raitt – Angel from Montgomery (with Keith Secola)

Filmed by Carlisle Antonio

The evening was magical, the Frybread sisters wore flowers in their hair, Javelinas Jammed, Jack Rambled, Bonnie Prayed, John drummed, Jennifer danced, Jeremy Drove, Charlie laughed, Katari cried, Max crooned, Dennis appeared, Michael Spears, Pete Sears, Melanie Stormm, Rosie Spoke, Floyd’s Carla, Quiet Shea, Loud Micki, Mike Smith, rock and rock, the boys in the band: Jimmy V, SevV’s, Chad the Man-dolin, Roberto.  Floyd’s handpicked misfits. In the distance, seals barked, and heels walked to parked cars near the Wharf with graffiti saying, “honor an artist by singing their songs.”  We did that night, 18 songs in a 7 song set on 11/13/08.
