From Jeff Cleavenger, the guitar maker, on why he made this guitar:

I have been supportive of the rights of Native people for decades.  I first attended the Gathering of Nations several years ago and quickly understood the importance of preserving the culture and wisdom of Native Nations, Tribes and Pueblos.  The Gathering is truly the largest in the world with thousands of dancers, drummers and singers from over 500 Nations.
I wanted to do my part and show my support.
Although I am not a Tribal member, I recognize the need for all of us to join hands in the sacred hop and dance together as one people.
I chose to donate this custom guitar both to recognize music as a universal language, to allow someone the opportunity to win a unique world class instrument and to give back to the Gathering.
We chose the White Buffalo as a sign for all people as told in an ancient prophesy.
It is my gift to the people and to the generations to come.
Thanks Jeff for this amazing guitar!  Show your support of Gathering of Nations by buying a ticket!
