Had an absolutely fantastic time at the CANDO Economic Development Youth Summit in Edmonton Alberta. I gained so much knowledge on economic development in Indigenous communities. Made so many connections with some amazing people! I'm so happy to be part of the CANDO family and wish all of the Indigenous youth the very best of luck in their future endeavours!! #tahoe #cando #squad #indiantime #casino #icecube #edmonton #mall #beautifulpeople #foreveryoung #drezus

“In the opening shot of ‘Warpath,’ someone paints a white hand over aboriginal rapper Drezus's mouth. That's a symbol for white European oppression — it's a symbol for why Drezus raps in the first place. He's not the only one: #Drezus is only part of a growing movement of Native American and Native Canadian rappers who are providing voice for one of the most marginalized groups in our society. And in the process, they're making the truest hip-hop we have.”
(Tom Barnes, MIC, 2014)
“The next hot sound? Powwow step, aboriginal hip-hop. Perhaps best exemplified by the group A Tribe Called Red, powwow step is more than just a music genre.”
(2013 by Benjamin Shingler)
“The members of A Tribe Called Red are Ian Campeau, Dan General and Bear Witness. Their mixture of different sounds has been dubbed powwow step. (Pat Bolduc)
“Once you hear it, it makes total sense: a blend of hip-hop, reggae and dub-step, with elements of the traditional dance music of Native American powwows.”
“First Nations women are (also) taking back their stolen title from Canada’s colonizing British Queen (a reference to the Queen of England as well as a president’s wife) and returning the first ladyship where it belongs—with themselves. (i.e. JB the First Lady-Indigenous Love)
First Lady Crew member, JB is a: beat-boxer, emcee, performing artist, aboriginal youth educator, single mother, award-winning actor, and member of the Nuxalk and Cayuga Nations who is “using [her] words to go upwards/not backwards.”
(Mel Mindel, Bitchmedia.org, 2011) / Coast Salish Territory
“But there’s much more to the rise of (Aboriginal Pow Wow Step): it hasn’t shied away from political issues as Canada wrestles with its brutal treatment of indigenous peoples through history. (There’s a ) new generation of artists who are helping redefine how aboriginal culture is viewed by the wider Canadian public and articulate the need for greater aboriginal self-determination.
Tribe has been a vocal supporter of the grass-roots protest movement known as Idle No More” by (speaking) out thru a myriad of activism...”

Met a man by the hip hop name @drezus this weekend. Would like to thank you greatly for speaking this weekend and for reaching out to all the others that need the confidence boost in their music careers and much more. Your lyrics in your songs are great just as you speak in conferences around the world. Continue reaching out to all the native/Metis youth and show them that we can all make it to the big screen or even on the radio. You've shown me that it doesn't only take practice to get to where you need to be but making changes in your own personal life no matter what or how hard things can seem in life. Someday I'm hoping we can maybe write a song together and produce it your lyrics are so strong and mean oh so much to our people. With that also being said have a safe travel getting to where you need to be next!!!

This past Spring has been greater than anything I could have ever imagined. I've had the opportunity to work alongside so many talented artists, individuals, and organizations who really support the indigenous music movement in Mohkhintsiss (Calgary).

Here are some of my favourite pics, bring on Summer '18!
