RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World | Independent Lens

The electric story of how Native American influence shaped rock and roll, a missing chapter in music history, tracing the melodies, rhythms and beats of traditional Native music as they took different forms across the spectrum of 20th-century American rock.

RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World is streaming only through November 30 online and on the free PBS Video app.

Lakota John | Music at the Museum

Lakota John is from the Lakota and Lumbee tribes, and started his musical journey on a diet of classic rock, classical and jazz music, blues and roots. Inspired by '90s and 2000s jams, Lakota John's sonic signatures combine with tight arrangements and unique storytelling. With a "write first, instrument later" approach, Lakota John's music is the support to carry the story further.

Lakota John is streaming now online and on the free PBS Video app.

Albuquerque's Native American Hip-Hop Dance | If Cities Could Dance

Described as “Indigenous futurism,” Albuquerque’s hip-hop and freestyle dance scene is driven by Indigenous dancers from many tribes, Pueblos and communities. A strong sense of solidarity holds it together, say dancers Anne Pesata (Jicarilla Apache) & Raven Bright (Diné). Randy L. Barton, a dancer, DJ & artist (Navajo) created The Sacred Cypher, an event where Indigenous art forms & hip-hop link.
