Artist Spotlight: The Red and Blues

 The Red and Blues are releasing singles up to the release of their debut, self-titled, EP. Aiming for a full album release in the fall, the band is making these songs available for their fans, friends, and family. The all Native (Pawnee, Sioux, Creek) Soul-Rock/Blues trio consists of Kahheetah Barnoskie (Drums, Guitar, Bass), Reign Charger (Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals), and Marcus Barnoskie (Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals). The multi-instrumentalists exchange instruments during their sets to focus their sound in to a Rock and Blues style with contrasting soul and rock rhythms. The Red and Blues music can be streamed or downloaded from soundcloud (soundcloud.com/the-red-and-blues) and reverbnation (reverbnation.com/theredandblues).
Founding members Marcus Barnoskie and Reign Charger met in Lawrence, Kansas while attending Haskell Indian Nations University. Kahheetah Barnoskie, sibling of Marcus, became a member shortly after the conception of the band, for her multi instrumental talents. The band was formed in February of 2015with the focus of spreading their message of hope and justice to Indigenous nations across the globe.
The band was selected to perform at Gathering of Nation’s Stage 49 in April of 2015 and performs frequently (2-3 shows/month) in the Lawrence, Ks area. The band is set to return to the stage in August, when school resumes, and are working diligently to finish a debut album.

International Spotlight: Sámpi Nation • Artist Spotlight: Heather Rae
The 16th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is proud to announce the Opening and Closing Galas for the Festival, running October 14-18, 2015, plus this year’s International Spotlight, and the inaugural imagineNATIVE Artist Spotlight, acknowledging Indigenous creative leaders.
imagineNATIVE’s Opening Night Gala on Wednesday, October 14 at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema will be Sterlin Harjo’s Mekko, starring Rod Rondeaux and Sarah Podemski. Mekko is a thriller following a man who must navigate a welcoming, yet dangerous, community of Native Americans living on the streets, after release from his 20-year prison sentence. Prior to Mekko, imagineNATIVE will present the Festival Premiere of Jeff Barnaby’s experimental short film Etlinisigu’niet (Bleed Down). 
The Closing Night Gala will be Fire Song by Cree/Métis filmmaker Adam Garnet Jones, on Sunday, October 18 at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Fire Song is a powerful, dramatic feature film, starring Andrew Martin and Jennifer Podemski, about a young gay man who dreams of leaving his reserve for the city. When the world as he knows it falls apart, the future he’s been dreaming of seems impossible to reach.
The 2015 International Spotlight will focus on Sámi films and filmmakers of the Sápmi nation, the Indigenous people of Norway, Sweden, Finland and northwestern Russia. Proud reindeer herders, the Sámi have a rich tradition as artists and filmmakers, which has seen a boom in the last five years. As part of the Spotlight on Sápmi, imagineNATIVE will present two shorts programs, Nils Gaup’s Academy-Award nominated Pathfinder, and indigiTALKS: Our Stories Must Be Heard, a video-essay series introducing the world of Sámi cinema from stereotypical depictions in mainstream film, to the International Sámi Film Institute which funds contemporary Sámi features and TV series. 
imagineNATIVE is happy to announce the inaugural Artist Spotlight, which will celebrate the work of Cherokee filmmaker Heather Rae. This annual Artist Spotlight will acknowledge Indigenous creative leaders whose work has broken new ground and created lasting contributions to the Indigenous media arts. Heather Rae will be in attendance as imagineNATIVE screens three of her films, Trudell, Wild Walkers, and the two-time Academy Award-nominated Frozen River, that will be followed by a tribute to the late actress Misty Upham, co-star of Frozen River.  
The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous festival showcasing innovation in film, video, audio and digital media. The Festival presents the most compelling and distinctive works from Canada and around the globe, reflecting the diversity of the world’s Indigenous nations and illustrating the vitality and excellence of Native art and culture in contemporary media. 
The 16th annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival will be held in Toronto October 14-18, 2015.
Early Bird Ticket Packages and Delegate Passes are now on sale for a limited time

I want to say a special thank you to my brother, Justin Fultz. Today would’ve been very difficult without his help!

Thanks to Edwin Marshall for giving me the opportunity to document and record a historic moment and event.

Thanks to the Wetumka Indian Baptist church for hosting this historic event.

Thanks to the Creator for such a beautiful & extremly hot day. But, it brought back memories of watching the elders from when I grew up. It showed the strength our ancestors had walking the trail of tears to get to their new home, the struggles they had being killed, raped, beaten, and burglarized of their belongings.

Thanks to my family, Aunt Fuzzy, Momma Carolyn, my lovely wife Angela and daughter Meeka for sharing me on my birthday so I could do something I loved doing. Plus it doesn’t hurt when you get a great homecooked dinner with cake and ice cream!

This video/ documentary will be available for free. There are no special screenings or charges. Due to the historic nature of this event, I wanted to make available for everyone to watch, learn, participate & remember. If you would like to make a donation, we appreciate it but it is not required.
