The Speaker

“For the magic, grace, and power of your music that illuminates and teaches, For your words of wisdom and hope that send a healing message to our young people, For walking beside them with compassion and honor, And for reaching out with an open heart, There is no greater work to be done. The Governor of Taos Pueblo thanks you, The Taos Pueblo Recovery Program thank you and those lives who you have touched today, thank you.”

-Vincent Lujan, Former Governor of Taos Pueblo

-Paul T. Martinez, Former Lt. Governor of Taos Pueblo

I know you performed twice in San Carlos and to this day! I still hear people talk about you and how you inspired them. I’ve seen our youth from then to now succeed In their own music are leaderships within our community. I Was there when you first did the concert and then the second time when you came back.Thank you for your words of encouragement to our people, especially the youth.

Della Gilson

What is a Warrior? A warrior is the protector of his family, his clan and his tribe. A Warrior is the guardian of the old ways so that they are not forgotten. A warrior is not motivated by greed, political ambition or fame. A warrior will not put himself above others in need. And above all, a Warrior is the living spirit of our Grandfathers. Litefoot, we see this Warrior to be you. Your words are great and powerful. Miigwich (thank you)

Litefoot has the ability to reach youth with his rap music and appearance, while spreading a spiritual and cultural message that has the ability to effect life changes in individuals.”

“Thank you again for coming to Blacksburg, VA…we have been very blessed by your words and example. It’s so easy to get lost in a university setting – many of us are a long way from home here, and on this big, competitive campus it’s easy to lose touch with the values and traditions that so few even can clearly see, much less understand or relate to. You’ve shared that message with people in a way that I hope will open up some hearts and help us *all* move forward in a good direction, living the visions that will help bring everything and everyone back together. The fire that you brought with you will keep going on!”
