Indigenous Pop

Native American Music from Jazz to Hip Hop

The University of Arizona Press

American Indian musicians have been innovators in virtually all popular forms of music—jazz, blues, country-western, rock and roll, reggae, punk, and hip-hop. In fact, some of the United States’ most prominent musicians have been American Indians. Yet for too long their contributions have been invisible to the public. This book showcases the range of musical genres to which Native musicians have contributed and the unique ways in which their engagement advances the struggle for justice and continues age-old traditions of creative expression.

Indigenous Peoples Rise Up

The Global Ascendency of Social Media Activism

Rutgers University Press

Indigenous Peoples Rise Up: The Global Ascendency of Social Media Activism illustrates the impact of social media in expanding the nature of Indigenous communities and social movements. Social media has bridged distance, time, and nation states to mobilize Indigenous peoples to build coalitions across the globe and to stand in solidarity with one another. Including examples like Idle No More in Canada, Australian Recognise!, and social media campaigns to maintain Maori language, Indigenous Peoples Rise Up serves as one of the first studies of Indigenous social media use and activism.
