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.
Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
