Remember the first time you heard a song, verse, line, beat, or poem that helped you make sense of your world? Remember how it spoke to whatever you were going through at the time? We all became artists because of that moment. We all became artists because we believe in art, music, poetry, and a song’s power to impact lives. The Last Stand is a return to those seeds of inspiration that got us to where we are today –practicing, breathing, working, and living artists.
The mission of this mixtape is to take a stand to express what we believe in. We hope to inspire and empower Native youth through spoken word and hip-hop as well as to promote collaboration between Native artists in mutual genres.
Each year we will produce another volume of The Last Stand Mix Tape to promote similar collaborations and connections.
