Frank Waln & Friends Release New Video for ‘Good Way’

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown October 29th, 2017 Last Updated on: October 29th, 2017

Frank Waln released a new music video on Indigenous Peoples Day and it was well worth the wait. In the song, he has a little help from friends Gunner Jules and Rollie Raps, who also hail from the same reservation as Frank.

As he explains in an interview with Splinter News, the video was a great way to show the more light-hearted side of being Indigenous.

We are often portrayed as bloodthirsty savages that rarely smile and exhibit no emotion. Indigenous people are often portrayed as less than human in western media. “Good Way” is about us, as Lakota men, laughing, smiling and enjoying life together, being human beings.

The director of the video, Tomás Karmelo Amaya, is also Indigenous, and it helps with the overall positive vibe they were trying to capture.

Watch the video below and let us know how you like it!

Like someone else said, the video is super dreamy and it makes me wish summer would stick around a little longer. Also cool to see Chicago in the background of the video!

“Good Way” is available on Frank Waln's new album The Bridge. Find it on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Music, Tidal, Soundcloud and Bandcamp!

Lovely song! I am part Kickapoo and it’s nice to see an all young “Native American” group. Keep up the good work and we need more of our young ones to keep up our Native American Pride!!!
