Kevin Locke (Tokaheya Inajin in Lakota translation - “First to Rise”) is a world famous visionary Native American Hoop Dancer and preeminent player of the Indigenous Northern Plains flute. His role in life is to entertain, educate, engage, and empower the minds of both youth and adults in the North American Indian cultural arts and history of Native Americans. His special joy is working with children on the reservations to ensure the survival and growth of indigenous culture.

Kevin will be presenting "Mni Wiconi," or, "Water is Life," to his audience. For more information about him, visit his website at
