Indigenous music and musicians have a special place in our tribal societies. These music makers also understand it is important to share their words and sounds beyond tribal borders. This year the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival will bring several Indigenous musicians to its stages. As these musical ambassadors prepare to share their music with a diverse audience, we bring part of this year’s Indigenous lineup to our electronic talking circle. How can sharing Indigenous music in venues across the country help our tribal nations?
