Buffalo Boy’s Battle of Little Bighorny

Adrian Stimson

Festivals: M:ST 4 Biennial | October 3 - 17, 2008.

Sporting fishnet stockings, a bison g-string, and a buffalo corset, Adrian Stimson’s alter-ego Buffalo Boy returns to make his final stand. In a video and live performance that loosely imitates the film Little Big Man and Buffalo Bill’s theatrical Wild West shows, Stimson recreates the famous Battle of Little Bighorn in which U.S. Colonel Custer was finally defeated by the Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyenne tribes in southeastern Montana during the infamous “Indian Wars.” Playing both the characters of Custer and The Shaman Exterminator who kills him, this is Buffalo Boy’s last performance as he is known today.
