John Trudell coming to Portland to perform and discuss benefits of hemp

Native American musician, poet and activist John Trudell is coming to Portland for two public appearances.

First he'll speak on the subject of “Hemp as Earth Medicine,” in a free talk at Knacka Handcrafted Hemp Gear in Multnomah Village, 7824 S.W. 35th Ave. That takes place on Friday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. Seating is limited.

Then Trudell and Bad Dog will perform on Saturday, Sept. 7, at 6 p.m. in Kelly Point Park in Portland.

Trudell is the co-founder of the Hempstead Project with musician Willie Nelson, which is dedicated to raising awareness of the environmental and other benefits of industrial hemp in the U.S.

He was a former leader of the American Indian Movement, and has released several albums and volumes of poety.
