Spring's least-wanted fashion trend: The co-opting of Aboriginal dress I often feel invisible. When I tell people that I grew up on an Aboriginal reserve, they look at me like I’m a mythical unicorn, even though more than a million people in Canada identify themselves as First Nations, Métis or Inuit. I probably wouldn’t have thought we existed either if I hadn’t grown up on the Six Nations reserve in Southwestern Ontario. Back then, I only saw people who vaguely looked like me on CBC’s North of 60 . It was slim pickings as far as cultural references were concerned. But today, instead of homages rooted in realism like the CBC offered in the ’90s, all I see in the mass market is a shiny commercial version of “Native Americans” rooted in stereotypes from westerns, Disney cartoons and sports mascots.

Magazine photo dédié à la photographie, aux appareils photo et photographes sur 8 Songs by Native American Rappers That Deserve to Be Heard When hip-hop was born in the Bronx in the 1970s, it offered an unprecedented and powerful voice for the voiceless. The movement has since gone global, lending a vocabulary to people struggling for liberty and safety in places as far-reaching as Palestine, China and Russia. Hip-hop still has work to do in the States, though, and nowhere do hip-hop's stories of liberation and resistance resonate with greater urgency than with the country's longest oppressed group: its indigenous population. "Native Americans grasp that culture of hip-hop because of the struggle," Crow rapper Supaman told NPR. To this day, Native American reservations still make up some of the poorest regions in the country. 1. Hip-hop lore holds that Litefoot is the first Native American rapper to hail from a federally recognized reservation. Litefoot's response was to build his own label, Red Vinyl Records. 2. 3.

Q: Tell me a little more about yourself. A: I was born in Ottawa in 1993 into a Mohawk-German-Irish-Scottish family. Q: What do you know about your birth mother, who, as you said, was Mohawk? A: I don’t know much about her, but what I do know is that after she lost us she went into a downhill spiral and unfortunately passed away in 2009.
