Supaman teaches that rez cycles can be broken
Everybody knows him as Supaman but his birth name is Christian Parrish Takes the Gun, Apsaalooke (Crow), from Montana.
He is a hip-hop artist and a fancy dancer who fused the bad and the good from his life and put it into his music. That fusion gave the world a new genre of music that has inspired Indigenous artists from all nations.
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, Supaman visited the Page High Unity Club for a special nonprofit performance on Nov. 16. The price of admission was a can of food to help the Unity Club’s collection for the local food bank.
“These kids are great,” Supaman said. “I’m old Unity alumni from the school I went to so I enjoy doing these shows. They did a video on Facebook inviting me to Page and somebody tagged me in. So I wrote them back and said I would do it.
