Dirty Water at Bear Butte

Michael Bucher’s ‘Dirty Water’ music video delivers strong messageCherokee musician Michael Bucher has released a music video from a track on his independent album “Seven” titled, “Dirty Water.”

In the video, directed by Christopher Crosby, Bucher delivers a straightforward message: The growing popularity of the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota is contributing to the deterioration of the sacred Indian site of Mato Paha, also known as Bear Butte Mountain.

Mato Paha has been a sacred ceremonial site to the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota people for generations.
