About this Performance
Under the name A Tribe Called Red, Tim “2oolman” Hill (Mohawk, of the Six Nations of the Grand River) and Bear Witness (of the Cayuga First Nation) brought together hip-hop and electronic dance music with the sounds of First Nations pow wows—a sound that won them Juno Awards and got them shortlisted for the Polaris Prize in Canada. Their new name is a nod to the artist and activist John Trudell, who used it to describe the vast global community of people who remember at their core what it means to be human. Under any name, the duo brings a borderless, mind-expanding, body-pounding beat that, in the words of Bear Witness, is made for “people to dance to while still having a strong message.”
