After serving in the US Navy during the First Gulf War, he returned to Minnesota and finished his degree in American Indian Studies at Leech Lake Tribal College. Fahrlander has worked with youth in various settings while honing his skills as a traditional storyteller, writer, and poet. His greatest wish is to share the stories that have been given to him.
