Peter Buffett "is a well established musician, composer and producer as well as Co-Chairman of the NoVo Foundation. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Buffett began his career in San Francisco writing music for commercials. After recording four albums for Narada Records, Peter signed with Epic and then Hollywood Records resulting in four additional releases. His Emmy award winning CD entitled, Ojibwe was released on his own label, BisonHead. Highlights of his film and television work include the Fire Dance scene in the Oscar winning film Dances With Wolves and the entire score for 500 Nations the 8 hour miniseries for CBS produced by Kevin Costner. Buffett’s theatrical production, Spirit – The Seventh Fire, was located on the National Mall for the Smithsonian’s opening of the National Museum of the American Indian. Spirit – The Seventh Fire combines Imax scale film and imagery, all native dancers and a live band to tell the story of one man’s journey towards reconnection through his heritage and the land we live on. As Co-Chairman of the NoVo Foundation, Buffett helps guide the strategic plan that he and his wife Jennifer will then implement with a small dedicated staff over the coming years." [1]
