Come join us at Cotuit library to watch another amazing video about the power of music. MTV describes this fantastic cultural program as such:

“Rebel Music: Native America is one episode of a six-part documentary film series that explores the lives of young people who are using their art and music to ignite social and political change around the world. Rebel Music: Native America highlights Native American musicians who are using their art to inspire and transform their communities and the places they travel. This powerful story from South Dakota, Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada, and New York City depicts the lives of four characters: Frank Waln, a Lakota hip-hop artist who is fighting to save the environment, Inez Jasper a Skowkale musician who is bringing awareness to missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada, and Nataanii Means and Mike Cliff (aka Witko), Oglala Sioux from Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota who are encouraging youth to find strength and inspiration through music amidst high suicide rates in their community. These musicians demand positive change for their communities, harnessing the power of music to elevate their voices and escalate awareness. They understand that the future of their communities is at risk and are fighting in hopes of a more promising existence.” (www.mtv.com)

This movie is part of our Royston Nash Music Appreciation Series, supported in part by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, the Mid Cape Cultural Council, and the Kirkman Trust.
