Rebel Music Native America

(Sorry, Teen Wolf.)

Rebel Music features young artists who overcome oppression and use their art to connect, inspire and ignite action.

Rebel Music Native America discusses storytelling, mental health, the power of youth and violence against Indigenous women.

In the episode, Frank Waln talks about pipelines and taking care of the planet. Inez Jasper discusses staying positive and missing and murdered Indigenous women.

“To not pay attention to it is dismissing those people as non-human,” Jasper said about the issue. “People can’t ignore this anymore.”

Nataanii Means and Mike Cliff talk about Native Lives Matter, a campaign to draw awareness to police brutality and injustice.

    I love watching this show. It brings the deeper issues on a more lighter level that is geared towards the younger generation.
