Highlights: "All three of us were in Powwow Highway, me as AIM Activist Buddy Red Bow, Joanelle Romero as Buddy's sister Bonnie Red Bow, and John Trudell as Buddy's antagonist on the res, Louie Short Hair. Mr. Trudell, of course, was in fact an AIM Activist in real life, and he was strongly considered for the role of Buddy. He is a man I admire profoundly. His poetry and his music are singularly powerful, and his willingness to take on great risk for the sake of justice -- to stand up in harm's way and to speak truth to power -- is simply exemplary. It was an honor to be share time and space with him again, and a happy coincidence that I wore a Jackson Browne T-Shirt to the event, since JB has been a critically important man in both of our lives. This was a night I'll never forget" - A Martinez.
