Tony EagleHeart Garcia has been singing and playing music almost all of his life. In the 60’s and 70’s he performed in coffee houses, clubs and concerts in the San Francisco Bay Area where he had the honor of performing with many bands of that era including the Grateful Dead, Santana, Jefferson Starship and the Youngbloods.
Tony is deeply rooted in indigenous life. He was raised by his native nation, the Tarasco people of Mexico. His given name is Cante Wambli which means Eagle Heart in Lakota. Tony's original contemporary Native American music draws from all genres celebrating life, family and his spiritual connection to indigenous ways of being with respect to nature, his primary sources of inspiration. He writes about nature, justice, love, respect, unity and faith. Tony is always striving to grow, learn and share the findings of his truth through conversation, music and storytelling which is a part of native culture that weaves the fabric of existence.
Tony’s philosophy is simple: Life is sacred, a blessing and Creator's sacred gift. He writes about nature, justice, love, respect, unity and faith. Tony seeks an abundant blanket of gifts to share with family, friends and the people in gratitude, rather than fame or excessive financial fortune. His deepest desire is to share this experience of love and understanding as he walks on this Sacred path.

Red Lodge Transition Services is working to identify barriers and educate people about what they can do to prepare for re-entry. Their mission is to prevent incarceration and reduce recidivism primarily among Native American women and men. To provide assistance for individuals released from jails and prisons who are working on creating a better life for themselves, their children, and communities. To supply transition information, guidance and support to Native American individuals, families and communities. To prevent and reduce incarceration by breaking the cycle of chemical addiction, violence, abuse, hatred, hopelessness and neglect.
