2 min read

Mitch Walking Elk and Indigenous Youth Ceremonial Mentoring Society presented at the 2018 Veterans For Peace Annual Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Mitch defines himself as a singer, songwriter, musician, actor, and political and environmental activist. “I’ve been labeled a folk singer, but to Native Americans, I’m a protest singer,” Mitch said. Mitch escaped his label as a folk singer with the release of his fifth CD, a blues recording titled, Time for A Woman that won him an award for Best Blues recording at the 2005 Indian Summer Festival in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His friend, Wade Fernandez played guitar on that recording. “I don’t think I would have won that award without Wade’s guitar,” he explained. Mitch considers Fernandez “one of the best guitar players in the world, but the world doesn’t know it.”

Mitch has toured Europe, mostly German speaking countries, fourteen times, which speaks to the universality of his songs. He has also performed in Japan, Mexico City, Columbia, South America, and Canada.

Indigenous Youth Ceremonial Mentoring Society IYCMS is a program of GAP, an inner city alternative school in St, Paul, MN.The program is designed to teach ceremonies to Indigenous youth in SPPS.
