Wilfred Numkena: The Boy from Hopi Land

Before he was director of the Utah Division of Indian Affairs, local boy Wilfred Numkena from the very local Hopi tribe rocked out. This 1965 LP on the Red Feather imprint from the DIY era of homespun Southwest rock-n-folk features Wilfred on guitar and vocals.
