Trenton Wheeler, or Owl Top-Knot Feather, is a grass dancer and a member of the Blackfeet tribe. Despite his tribal affiliation, he did not grow up in an environment with rich Indigenous culture. Despite this, his father has helped instill a love and respect for their ancestral traditions, which he continues to pass on to generations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous People.
