A Tribe Called Red from Ottawa has become the face of an urban Native youth renaissance, championing their heritage and speaking out on aboriginal issues, while being on top of popular music, fashion, and art. Since 2010, the group—currently featuring DJ NDN, Bear Witness and 2oolman—has been mixing traditional pow wow vocals and drumming with cutting-edge electronic music. The evening begins with a panel session and audience Q&A featuring all members of the group followed by an evening concert. Both events are free and open to the public. Admission is conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis. RSVP to the Facebook event page for latest developments.
This program is presented by the Smithsonian’s Intangible Cultural Heritage project, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.
