Lynn Sota "Smokey" Hart


Lynn Sota "Smokey" Hart was born to a Yankton Sioux mother and Black father.  He was placed in a foster home at 3 days old then adopted  at age 13.  After graduation from high school, he joined the U.S. Marines.  While in the Marines, he took up rodeo bull riding as a hobby.


After his honorable discharge, he was determined to be a professional cowboy. He then became a ranch hand, rodeo bullfighter in the PRCA, AIRA and the Bill Pickett rodeo associations.  He appeared in two movies, HBO’s “The Cherokee Kid”  with Sinbad and Burt Reynolds, and TNT’s “Buffalo Soldier” with Danny Glover as a stuntman and just finished portraying "York" Captain Clark's slave with the national re-enactment of the Lewis and Clark expedition 2004-2007.


In 1990, South Dakota was one of four states in the union that had not voted Martin Luther King's birthday as a national holiday. When he learned of a hearing scheduled to debate this issue, he felt he had to testify.  Hart's emotional plea at the hearing changed allot of hearts and minds that day and the following day it passed. 


Lynn says "it was not him, he just got in the way!".  In January 1993, Hart received the "Making of King Holiday," award presented by Stevie Wonder on behalf of the Martin Luther King Federal Holiday Commission in Atlanta. One person can make a difference when he or she stands up for what they believe.


After that accomplishment, Lynn went on to become a leader in the effort to establish America's first state recognized Native American Day. "My higher power was involved," he said.


About the same time, Lynn Hart was instrumental in removing Columbus Day as a state recognized day in South Dakota.  "We have no Columbus day in South Dakota he said, It hasn't been recognized since 1990 and never will be either!".


He is a natural teacher and spokesperson and currently try to help fight drug abuse in Indian country.  Lynn designed twelve anti-methadone posters for Indian country.  He offers them here as a blessing to us all.
