Robert is an enrolled member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and is a husband, father, educator, film & video producer, & entrepreneur. During Standing Rock, he saw the need for a native radio show because of all the misinformation. He then founded Native Roots Radio, I’m Awake, in January 2017. He has hosted & produced show ever since. Native Roots Radio began as a one hour program once per week and has now expanded to a daily weekday broadcast, with replays on many stations. Due to COVID 19, Robert has expanded his reach by offering professional online symposiums and commercial work.
