Yo be sure to check this out!!

In Nov. 2019, South Dakota artist Bazille was awarded a grant from First Peoples Fund, which was utilized to create a residency hosted by Collective Influence Productions and Panoramic Dreams Productions in Spokane, WA.

In 5 days, over 20 songs were created and recorded in collaboration with over 20 artists both Native and Non-Native, with songs that surrounded the theme of the trickster Iktomi (Spider) from Ochethi Sakowin culture and beyond.

Join us live online TOMORROW (April 14th) on The Cave Collective & Bazille pages as Bazille performs “Traveling the Multiverse with Iktomi” live in its entirety for the first time, structured as a three-act play with special appearances by Rollie, Jay GreyOwl and others TBA!

Featuring accompanying visuals on stage, visual artists off-stage Focus Smith and Tani Gordon Art will be creating two live pieces that correspond to the performance/music.

Cinnamon Kills First - Artist

Fun fact: I was there at the conception of all of this.

MY SCHOLASTIC BOOKS ARE OUT!!!
⚡️ Buy now: https://tinyurl.com/killsfirst ⚡️

I was a kid who didn’t have the time or privilege to truly be a childhood reader. Characters in books and on TV never represented who I was, my family, or where we came from - the Rez! Yet now I have become, not only a writer, but a children’s book author who will ALWAYS WRITE FOR NDN BABIES! Our beloveds deserve to see their beautiful Indigenous selves reflected in books, their heroes uplifted in story, their homes and family kinship systems honored in writing, their ancestors brought to life on the page. Our babies deserve all that was taken from us and more! And as a start, I offer these gifts back to them.
.
.
Please, my fellow Nates, join me in CELEBRATION! 🥳 We are healing. We are rising! And I want you to sense how this feels in your body. Because as much as we feel the stress and the oppression, we must also feel the SUCCESS and HAPPINESS. Let it flow. Let it remind you now that we are unbound, limitless co-creators.
.
.
Never forget that WE ARE SACRED ⚡️
