Description

This Sicangu Lakota hip-hop artist, music producer, and writer from the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Described as the “Bob Marley of the Lakota” – travels the world, telling his story through performance and doing workshops focusing on self-empowerment and expression of truth. Frank Waln’s music career was inspired by finding a scratched-up discarded Eminem CD while walking on the res at age 12. He first performed at AANM in 2014 and had gone on to earn great acclaim for his artistry and his activism, which has focused on the Keystone XL pipeline among other issues affecting Indigenous Peoples. He returns this season to share stories and music connecting his experience as an indigenous artist to his 2017 trip to Palestine. Detroit-area artists (TBA) will join Waln for this intimate evening.
