From a rich heritage, Buddy is part Mohawk, Welsh and English on his mother's side and Comanche and Apache from his father's side. Buddy is a member of the Iroquois Nation and is a registered member of the Mohawk of Kahnawake Tribe of Canada.
For over 30 years, Buddy has been a well respected role model for the Education and Performing Arts by offering one of the best School Assembly Shows that leaves the staff, students and surrounding communities with a smile on their face, a song in their heart and leaves them laughing until he returns. Whether performing for 1 or 40,000 people at schools, theaters, night clubs, casinos, cruise ships, television, films or corporate events, Buddy continues to blend his own Grassroots style of comedy, bringing it to all the door steps around the globe and sharing the knowledge of his rich heritage as an American Indian.
