HOKA Album Review - Wild Family Photo

The Wild Family 2016 Album Of The Year

By | Family Story, The Guide Inside | No Comments

The Wild Family 2016 Album of the Year is HOKA, the latest album by Nahko and Medicine for the People. To us, this is the soundtrack of the Standing Rock movement. This music accompanied us from Texas to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, where we captured footage for our film, Standing in Solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux. HOKA showed up at the Oceti Sakowin campsite, alongside the prayer songs of Lakota warriors. And the album continues to excite our family here at home in Austin, with the kids dancing and singing along. Read More

Yes, our bodies have been around for a certain number of turns around the sun, but our souls—who we really are—are infinite and ageless.
