Arby and Pat Little Soldier were both born and raised on North Dakota. Arby was the Superintendent for the Twin Buttes Indian School for 2 terms and was the first Native American that went to Washington, DC and met with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and was able to eliminate 2 middle men stops of Tribal money for Education, thereby securing the extra money for more and higher quality materials and teachers.
In addition, Arby has been sent to Washington, DC (by his tribe) and danced for 5 different Presidents. We were contracted by his tribe to provide 7 horses for the ND legislators (Governor, senators, etc) when the National Native American Museum opened as part of the Smithsonium Institute of Museums, and he, as well as his sister Brenda Hall Dvorak, danced for Pres. Bush in the Rotunda after the opening parade. Arby's life-size portrait is hanging in the Rotunda Building, as a Native American Traditional dancer from the Ft. Berthold Indian Reservation in Newtown, ND.
Arby Pat are North Dakota native residents, who went all through school in North Dakota. Both of their fathers made historical impacts on the state's history. Pat's father, Mylan Carlson bought the original Harold Schafer Buffalo Ranch north of Bismarck, over 50 years ago and kept buffalo herds on it, until his death in 1978. Arby's father, Nathan Little Soldier, was Tribal Councilman for the Three Affiliated Tribes in Newtown, ND for 3 terms, before his death. Arby's mother, Rosella Little Soldier is 93 years old, and the eldest tribal member on the Ft. Berthhold Indian Reservation. Many of the senators, legislators, governors know Arby very well.
They now reside in Greenville, Texas where they raise a small herd of Buffalo and raise horses.
