This episode features two unique, sensational voices from Indian Country: Supaman and Chontay Standing Rock. One is an internationally touring Crow rapper whose powerhouse work inspires kids and adults across the country. The other is a rising young Chippewa Cree artist whose heartfelt songs quietly upend all expectations of traditional Native American music.
Award-winning Supaman, (aka Christian Takes Gun Parrish) is an Apsaaloke (Crow) musician, dancer, and rapper. His one-of-a-kind presentation combines Native culture, comedy and urban hip hop culture in a fresh, captivating, powerhouse style. His uncanny ability to motivate, encourage, and inspire through dance and hip hop music keeps him at the forefront among his contemporaries and has made him a powerful voice for Indigenous issues, especially among youth.
Chontay Mitchell Standing Rock is a Chippewa-Cree hand-drum champion and singer/songwriter from the Rocky Boy’s Reservation. Chontay’s soaring voice and deep roots in his Cree traditions bring an innovative, fresh voice to the Montana landscape.
We are delighted to bring these two artists to our stage to showcase some of the spectacular creative work in Indian Country today.
