"Hip Hop as Sacred Medicine?: Thoughts on Boujee Natives, Indigenous Rap Music, and NdN Popular Culture," by Kyle Hays, University of California, Los Angeles.

This talk presents the pitfalls and possibilities of Indigenous Hip Hop as a form of NdN popular culture. Using lyrics and videos, and considering the current state of affairs, this talk offers thoughts on the state of Indigenous Hip Hop and where it might be going in the future.

“Hip Hop in Times of Pandemic and Protest” is a series of four Wednesday evening events in March that explore the impacts, challenges, and possibilities of the current moment on Hip Hop.  Focusing on issues of representation, politics, performance, and pedagogy, these events are a collaboration with Kalonji Nzinga, Director of the Race and Popular Culture Laboratory (RAPLab) and have been funded by the generous support of a Roser Grant and the cooperation of CU Boulder’s Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies (CNAIS) and the Department of Theatre and Dance.
