A little #NativeAwesome to get your day started

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love and represent for Aboriginal DJ group, A Tribe Called Red.  Here’s a video that might give you a glimpse into why that is.

As an urban Indian with what is best described as a “pan-Indian” identity, these talented artists produce music that bridges the gap between traditional and modern; Native and mainstream.  I connect with their musical movement so deeply, that each piece feels like another song in the soundtrack of my life.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do and it cures any lingering Monday blues.  Have a great week, y’all!

And, remember:  It’s [always] a great day to be Indigenous!

Ottawa-based DJ Trio, A Tribe Called Red, holds what they call “Electric Pow Wows” in various cities around Canada and the U.S. in an effort to celebrate and preserve their culture. We recently caught up with the group during a performance in Toronto. Here is Amy Stretten with the story.
