About Bill Miller (source – Museum of Indian Culture)
Bill’s Indian name, Fush-Ya Heay Ka, means “bird song”. For over 30 years, Bill Miller’s music has amplified the whispers of Native peoples’ hearts, while bridging cultures around the world with his signature sound: thunder (the voice), wind (the Native American flute), water (the guitar), and soul (the story).
