GOODSHIELD AGUILAR | painter, sculptor, film maker, carpenter, musician and Buffalo activist


Goodshield Aguilar is a First Nations artist of Oglala Lakota and Pasqua Yaqui heritage. He is a painter, sculptor, film maker, carpenter, musician and Buffalo activist. He has dedicated the last 15 years of his life to helping protect and preserve the last genetically pure, free roaming buffalo left in north america, which are located in yellowstone, Montana. having worked for many years with the late, Floyd Red Crow Westerman, Goodshield has used the powerful mediums of music and film to raise consciousness and awareness of issues related to culture, nature, and the human experience that has been disconnected from the natural order of our co-existence with all creatures on our planet, even ourselves. His music can be summed up in his Indigenous Soul bands name, 7th GENERATION RISE. He travels the world speaking on behalf of the buffalo, bears, wolves and salmon and shares his culture and stories from his lineage and his experiences. He usually travels as a solo artist, strumming a guitar, while pounding a bass drum and singing, but he can also be heard playing with his band, 7th GENERATION RISE, comprised of himself on guitar and vocals, Mignon Geli on native Flute, Johnny Martinez on drums, and Dominic Moore on bass. Come experience Indigenous Soul!
