---->Cassy Huidobro is a video blogger, published author, and 2017 TEDx Colorado Springs poet. She advocates for social change by bringing awareness to divisive issues our society faces. Only then, she says, we’ll finally see each other for who we really are: Human. She holds an M.A. in Languages and Literature from the University of Utah and loves spending time traveling and with friends and family.
---->Formed in 2012, SCATTER THEIR OWN is an Alter-Native Rock Duo of Oglala Lakota ancestry from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota. Scatter Their Own has traveled from Canada to Texas, as well as journeyed from Los Angeles to New York City. Scattering their own music to all nations in all directions, Scotti Clifford (Guitarist and Vocalist) and Juliana Brown Eyes-Clifford (Bassist and Vocalist) were a couple first. But before too long, after playing music together, they realized that they should start a band. Recently joined by Scotti's teenage children on-stage, it has become a family effort. Welby June (Guitar) and Wahpe Waste Win (Drums), have successfully earned their spots as touring members in the group. At the young ages of 17 and 15, Welby June & Wahpe now perform professionally alongside their parents across North America.
Scotti refers to touring as a modern day buffalo hunt. «In order to provide for our family, we must follow the music. Through our endeavors, I hope to teach my children how to find balance, spiritually and professionally.» As a modern day Lakota family who views movement as sacred, Scatter Their Own has no difficulty packing up their Tipi and guitars in order to follow the buffalo.

---->LIVE LIFE Movement Art by Walt Pourier: Oglala Lakota outta Pine Ridge, artist, designer, youth outreach activist, motivational speaker… just a spirit on a human journey connecting the like minds of the world to our indigenous knowledge and prophecies through what creative means I have… learned and shared spiritual knowledge: „skan skan“ something that moves… spiritual vitality… the force of life itself… something each of us and all of life posse within… your understanding within is the essence of you and to follow it… your sacred choice. „Taku skan skan wakan“ something holy is moving… and it is you.» — Hoka
