Christian Parrish Takes the Gun, or Supaman, has been sharing his hip hop styling on the internet with own unique Native American style.
Why hip hop?
“Native Americans grasp that culture of hip-hop because of the struggle,” he says. “Hip-hop was talking about the ghetto life, poverty, crime, drugs, alcohol, teen pregnancy; all that crazy stuff that happens in the ghetto is similar to the reservation life. We can relate to that.” NPR Interview
From his new Facebook Video:
They say to dance like nobody is watching. I think that implies that we are afraid or ashamed to dance in front of the people. I say dance like everybody is watching. Dance like your children are watching, your ancestors, your family. Dance for those who are hurting, those who can't dance, those who lost loved ones and those who suffer injustices throughout the world. Let every step be a prayer for humanity! Most of all dance for the Creator, who breathed into your soul so you may celebrate this gift of life! Shoutout to Nakoa Heavy Runner with the beautiful song “Let us Dance” A'ho! #illuminatives#prayer#honor
