The Snotty Nose Rez Kids, an Indigenous hip-hop duo hailing from the Haisla nation, join us to chop it up about their new EP “Born Deadly”, the #ShutDownCanada movement against pipelines and artist life under COVID-19.
Happy new year! And welcome back to another edition of The Rebel Beat. On this edition, I wanted to share a radio program I guest-hosted on CKUT radio in Montreal, Funky Revolutions. What you’re about to hear is a 2 hour music mix of funky soul, hip-hop, reggae, and folk, with a special focus on the struggle against pipelines on Wet’suwet’en territory.
We’re joined by Jennifer Wickam (35:00), a Wet’suwet’en land defender who has been holding it down at the Gidimden checkpoint. The tension has been high over the last few weeks as RCMP police are poised to attack the community yet again.
