Thanksgiving? No creo. This week we’re giving you a little antidote to some of the revisionist history that’s popular at this time of year by bringing indigenous artists who are making music that emphasizes their roots, integrating indigenous languages, instrumentation, and cultural references. We hope that you’ll hear evidence that the colonial project has failed – indigenous cultures today are alive despite it all, and this small sampling of dynamic and diverse bodies of work is a tiny taste of that lucha.
