Listen to Mic Jordan’s Inspirational Song – #DearNativeYouth

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 2nd, 2015 Last Updated on: September 2nd, 2015


Ojibwe Hip Hop artist Mic Jordan is back once again with an inspirational message for the youth. You might have seen the viral hashtag #DearNativeYouth sometime this past Spring being shared across social media networks. Indigenous folks everywhere were providing their messages of hope and inspiration to their younger peers and reminding them that their life has value, meaning and importance. Mic Jordan also felt the need to reach out with his own personal message.

Throughout the song, Mic Jordan addresses what he went through growing up on the Turtle Mountain reservation and explains how things have come to be brighter over time. #DearNativeYouth delivers a personal message to our youth that needs to be heard.

Great track right? I'm pretty sure I've listened to this about 5 times in a row now! You can find this track on the “The Last Stand Mixtape” which has a whole slew of talented Native artists involved. The mission behind the mixtape is to inspire and empower Native youth through spoken word and hip-hop as well as to promote collaboration between Native artists in mutual genres.

Just think we’re writing a song with him and a video


Just think we’re writing a song with him

What a beautiful, heart wrenching, heart warming song. It makes me so sad to think of what some people have endured in their lives yet so hopeful that we can band together and provide hope and support to ensure everyone has a chance for success (whatever that may mean to you as an individual). Thank you for sharing your story and for being an inspiration to other young people.
