Rebel Music: Native America is one of a six-part series of documentary films about youth, music and global social change, focused on youth protest movements in the most challenging and turbulent parts of the world. Rebel Music: Native America just so happens to feature some of the most popular up and coming Native American artists. You don't want to miss this.

Rebel Music: Native America features musician/activists:

Frank Waln: a passionate and provocative Sicangu Lakota hip-hop artist who uses his music and activism to fight against the destruction of the environment and cultural heritage.

Inez Jasper: an award winning pop music powerhouse who uses her platform as a public figure to shed light on the epidemic of missing and murdered Native women.

Nataanii Means: a budding activist and passionate hip-hop artist (and son of American Indian Movement luminary Russell Means), who uses his music to fight against the spread of suicide on Native reservations.

Mike Clifford: a Pine Ridge Reservation rapper who works with Nataanii to inspire Native youth with his message of perseverance and resistance.

Looking forward to seeing this! If you can't wait until next week to check out these artists, you can find playlists and more at RebelMusic.com.

If you don’t speak up for yourselves. No one else will speak up for you. Except you.
You’re not just people from yesteryear. You’re still here. And you’ll always be here.
