Native Heritage Month with A Tribe Called Red

Posted By Charlie Ballard November 13th, 2015 Last Updated on: November 13th, 2015

This past week, First Nations Electric Music Trio, “A Tribe Called Red” , made a pit stop in San Francisco, California., to watch a tribute video made about them at the 40th Annual American Indian Film Awards.  A Tribe Called Red have niched themselves a piece of the music market by blending powwow and contemporary electronic dance music.

The group consists of three DJs: Ian “DJ NDN” Campeau (of the Nipissing First Nation), Tim “2oolman” Hill (Mohawk, of the Six Nations of the Grand River), and Bear Witness (of the Cayuga First Nation).

Their hoop dancer, James Jones (Tall Cree), has been dancing with ATCR for the past 2 1/2 years, James specializes in Bboy dancing, fancy, grass & hoop.


Is it me or does James look like a powwow angel?

James recently celebrated a birthday and you can follow him on instagram:


How many of you remember James dancing in last years, “Rock Your Mocs NYC” , with Thosh Collins?

Happy Native Heritage Month everyone!
