Bill Miller shares the rich heritage of his Native American roots; the trials and tribulations of overcoming the stereotype of our Native Americans. Bill becomes the storyteller; explaining how he draws from visual images of a medicine man, when he writes or paints. He demonstrates the creative process, both musically and visually; how they are one in the same.
At the Native American Music Awards, Bill Miller was honored with five awards: including Songwriter, Song of the Year, Folk Artist and Artist of the Year. He has shared the stage with Pearl Jam, Tori Amos, BoDeans, Richie Havens, and Arlo Guthrie.
Bill's lecture topics include Life on the Reservation, Music, Art, Community Outreach and Awareness. Bill normally spends the day in the classrooms and then brings the community together for an evening concert. Bill Miller, a man of many Seasons; Songwriter, Performer, Artist, Lecturer; A Craftsman of Words, Music, and Canvas; A messenger for and about his heritage.
