Indians don’t commonly call elders by their first name, but Pete was always Pete and so he shall always be.  His life was a sound track of the labor movement, the anti-war movement, and the civil rights movement.
 He contributed his talents to the movement to free Leonard Peltier, among many other persons locked up in disputes with governments.  Like many decent people, he spent the fifties on the black list.  His last major brush with censorship was his appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in 1967, from which his song Waist Deep in the Big Muddy was cut until a public outcry reversed the decision in 1968.  http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2014/01/28/pete-seeger-walks-94-153301
