Edward Iron Cloud

From the Oglala Sioux Tribe, South Dakota.

In September 2018 we visited the homeland of the Lakota people. We met the buffalo farmer Ed Iron Cloud and his partner Lucille R. Contreras and had a little concert in their home. We went out on the field to see if we could find the buffaloes, and after a while we barely saw them in the far distance. We were asked if we could write a song for the buffaloes, and some months after returning back to Norway the song came.

"The Buffaloes of Ed Iron Cloud" is a dedication to the important work this family is doing on their homeland, both culturally and socially.
