Educating and entertaining with straight talk and spoken word, John Trudell, Native American activist, musician, actor, poet and philosopher, made a very special appearance on September 6th, 2013 at KNACKA Handcrafted Hemp Gear in Portland, OR.

Trudell is the co-founder of Hempstead Project Heart with Willie Nelson, a project of Earth Island Institute. Hempstead Project Heart is dedicated to raising awareness about the environmental, social, and economic benefits of legalizing industrial hemp in America.

Massive respect and thanks to this man John Trudell. He came through KNACKA on September 6th for an evening of poetry and talk and brought an experience that no one will ever forget.

It was through conversations with John about industrial hemp that my focus and path became aligned with the plant and the KNACKA shop was sprouted from. John’s talk was a wonderful way to bring it all home and prepare for what is ahead. To share time and space with him and everyone that was able attend was a true joy, thank you all for making it what it was.
