About

Greetings,

I’d like to inform you of our on-going fund raising effort to release our newest compilation “Written In Blood”. This album will be released through our youth program called Peace and Balance of Native Movement a 501c3 non-profit organization (www.nativemovement.org)

The album itself will utilize the arts to address issues of violence, substance abuse, colonization and genocide in Native communities. This is an effort to raise funds for youth projects for the winter of 2011, the 5th annual Native American Heritage Showcase and the new formed Native Pride Campaign.

“I realize that we’ve all been assimilated to various degrees, going back in time is not an option or focusing on how we've been wronged. I can talk about that till I'm blue in the face and not a damn thing will change. I'd rather focus my time and energy on how we can rebuild, continue to have pride and move on in a good way” Yaiva said in a recent interview “I mean, I’m a hip-hop artist and if you don’t know by now, this is not a traditional form of expression, but I’ve made it my own as a native person and just because we are living in 2010, that is no reason I can not be proud of my cultural and tribal identity”.

Our goal is to raise enough funds to digitally master this album, press 2000 copies of the album (the pressing or replication process is where a glass master is made and the dics are than pressed with the audio information which produces a professional industry standard disc, this process is NOT that of burning a cd process which is called duplication) and do sufficient marketing for this project that includes bringing on board a professionally graphic artist to make our graphics for posters, newpaper ads, and postcards. We have selected Bahe Whitethorne Jr. to be our graphic artist.

Then in turn we plan to use future funds raised from this project to help fund our Speaking and Listening Tours where we visit schools, share our stories and offer hope to our youth, plan and promote the 5th annual Native American Heritage Showcase where we feature various, traditional and contemporary artists and our new Native Pride Campaign where we are aiming to get signatures from ten thousand students during the 2010-2011 school year to pledge to be proud of their native heritage which includes but not exclusive to, language retention, sobriety and a drug free life-style, family honor, suicide prevention, good academic standing and goals of higher education.

The compilation album will feature Casper Loma-Dawa from Hopi land, KASP from Victoria, BC, Canada, 2006 NAMMY winner Buggin Malone from Oneida, Quese iMC of the Pawnee and Seminole Nations, Wab Kinew of Toronto, Canada, Big Luda of Flagstaff, AZ., Orion and more.

We willl also be featuring pow-wow singing from Rivertail of Tuba City, AZ a northern drum group and Buc Wild of Chinle, AZ, a southern drum group. Also Yaiva and Kelvin long have sang and recorded a tribute song for the late Dakota Redday. The song is called FREEDOM and was composed by Dakota who was taken from us on July 10th of 2010.

At the completion of this video we have had numerous more tracks submitted including an original song from Jaye Begaye, world renown hand-drum singer, from Brian Holmes who is a Hopi prayer singer, Tolteka from Los Angeles who is a politically charged hip-hop artist to name a few more artists that will be featured.

As of September 30th, 2010 this project is more than 75% completed. We are giving ourselves 36 days to raise the $6000 to fund this project.
