John Trudell's potent imagery and passionate convictions have established his international reputation as a poet and musician. Using his commanding voice, the "people's poet" has also made great strides as a Native American activist, as a leader of the American Indian Movement, and as spokesperson for the All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island. For the first time, Lines from a Mined Mind brings together lyrics and musings from Trudell's 20-year recording career. More than a simple anthology, this collection goes deeper, revealing the incendiary intersection of music and activism.
