There are currently three barbers on staff including
Savoy who has been cutting hair for 19 years. Marlon Joe (Crow/Navajo) has been
cutting hair for 19 years and proudly served in the military. Christian Iron
Shield (Lakota from Standing Rock Sioux) has been cutting hair for 6 years now.
Although they currently have no storefront, they plan
to have one in the future. Right now they are traveling the plains area setting
up at pow wows, basketball tournaments and any other community gatherings. Their
home base is in Crow Agency, Montana.
“We started doing our barber booth last year at
the Crow Native Days Pow Wow which is in June and from there we just been
hitting whatever gathering we can. We also give free haircuts to our local
schools at the beginning of the school year.”
So where can you find these barbers this year? Be on
the lookout for them to hit up the Crow Native Days Pow Wow again this June, the
4th of July Pow Wow in Lame Deer, Montana, Rocky Boy Pow Wow, Little Shell Pow
Wow in New Town, ND in August, Crow Fair, United Tribes Pow Wow in North Dakota
and Black Hills Pow Wow in Rapid City, South Dakota.
And if you read this in time, they plan on setting up
this weekend at the
48th Annual MSUB
Powwow, April 8-9, 2016, which is held in the Alterowitz Gym on the Montana
State University Billings campus.
