Growing up Kemmer had little access to Blackfeet culture and was always afraid of the magic deeds people talked about. When he stopped drinking, he felt a growing emptiness. One day he joined a ceremony. A revelation. All of a sudden everything made sense. Kemmer is now part of the Horns, a society dedicated to revitalize their tribal language, culture and identity in the belief that strength comes from a healthy self-image. For Kemmer it’s the first time he feels a genuine sense of belonging.
Today Kemmer runs a Relay team with his family - INII YAWMAHKA (Buffalo Runner). His teenage son Cliff is a gifted rider and his youngest boy Kru competes in youth races. Against all odds Kemmer, his wife Paula and their kids hit races all over the Mountain States.
